ZURICH – RHINE FALLS – LUCERNE – BERN – INTERLAKEN – SAINT GALLEN – SAINT MORITZ

ZURICH

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland, spreading around Lake Zurich on both banks of the Limmat River, against the background of the snow-capped Alps. The treasury of Europe with the largest banks and the most powerful financial institutions in the world’s financial lobby, is at the same time an unhealthy and extroverted city. The city with European noblework impresses with its contradictions. The city’s museums bring together artistic treasures of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, as well as pioneering trends in design. Take a boat ride to the calm waters, go up on the retro tram and look out of the windows the most beautiful parts of the city. Serve in the picturesque streets of Niederdorf and hold clubbing in one of the five hundred bars of the extremely active Zurich night.
