The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Uferpromenade Weggis and Wooden Bridge from Rapperswil to Hurden. Your inner history buff will appreciate Munot and Hofkirche. Step out of Zurich to go to Baar and see Hollgrotten, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stop by Confiserie Sprungli, examine the collection at FIFA World Football Museum, don't miss a visit to Bahnhofstrasse, and take a stroll through Niederdorf.

To find other places to visit, maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Zurich tour itinerary website .
