While the dazzling Alpine kingdom of Zurich may be well-known for its prosperous banking industry, it has also emerged as a tourist-friendly city with plenty to offer. Set on both Lake Zurich and the Limmat River, the natural backdrop alone makes Zurich worthwhile to visit in addition to offering a variety of other sites, such as the medieval Fraumünster church, Sprüngli chocolate factory, and Kyburg Castle. Zurich also provides an ideal place to start for day trips to Switzerland’s other notable cities, including the medieval Bern, charming Lucerne, and the culture-rich city of Basel. Your Zurich vacation will leave you wanting more and more adventure.
