The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Zurich: Lucerne (Chapel Bridge & Biosphaere Entlebuch), Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona (in Glarus) and Mt Pilatus (in Kriens). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fraumünster Church, head outdoors with Hallenbad City, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Grossmunster, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich.

Interlaken, Switzerland

— 3 nights
Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.

There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Trümmelbachfälle, take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier, and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
