The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen and Swimming Pools Unter Letten. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Zurich: Lucerne (Mt Pilatus, The Nine Towers, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Grossmunster, make a splash at Hallenbad Altstetten, and enjoy the sand and surf at Strandbad Mythenquai.
