The old town was beautiful. Other than that nothing special. There is not so much of a nightlife, somewhat expensive

Awesome country. One of the best to live in the World. Everything works perfectly and Zurich is a nice hub to explore Switzerland, especially by train.

LOVE Switzerland. Very picturesque and looks exactly like a post card. No edit needed!! Will definitely go back. Went to visit a friend who lives there and we spent most of the time doing outdoorsy things. Went hiking in Luzern and went to a nude spa (promotes body confidence and worth the experience), shopping in Bern, went to local bars. I went in July/August and recommend bringing a jacket as it started to cool down.
