The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.

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.
