Geneva — 6 nights

Capital of Peace

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Escape the urban bustle at Lake Geneva and Creux du Van. Explore Geneva's surroundings by going to Roman Columns (in Nyon), Gorges de l'Areuse (in Boudry) and Tourbieres des Ponts-de-Martel (in Les Ponts-de-Martel). Next up on the itinerary: ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, kick back and relax at Bains des Paquis, see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum, and glide through the air with Centre Geneve de Vol Libre – Paradelta.

Plan my Geneva trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Zurich — 13 nights

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Escape the urban bustle at Lake Zurich and Titlis. Get out of town with these interesting Zurich side-trips: Biberweg (in Eglisau), Kirche St. Johann (in Schaffhausen) and Neuhausen am Rheinfall (Rhine Falls & Smilestones). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Mt Pilatus, make a trip to Bahnhofstrasse, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maennlichen.

To find photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Zurich travel planner.
