The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Visit Old Town and Fraumünster Church for their historical value. Bahnhofstrasse and Hofkirche are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona (in Glarus), Pilatus Luzern (in Kriens) and Lucerne (Biosphaere Entlebuch & Mt Pilatus). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen, pause for some serene contemplation at Grossmunster, and view the masterpieces at ARTBOX.GALLERY.
