Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Lucerne (Town Hall, Chapel Bridge, &more) and St Gallus Catholic Church (in Kriens). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, look for gifts at Teuscher Chocolates of Switzerland, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich), and take a leisurely stroll along Seebad Utoquai.
