While browsing in the elegant boutiques along
Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse, one of the most beautiful shopping areas
in Europe, you'll notice that the streets may not be paved with
gold, but you can be certain that a couple of metres below,
unimaginable treasures are lying in underground vaults.
The Swiss National Museum Zurich
Housed in a castle-like building with a
distinctive tower, The Swiss National Museum provides a fascinating
look at Swiss culture and history and contains a comprehensive
collection of artefacts from the Stone Age to modern times.
The Rhine Falls Zurich
An excellent day trip from Zurich and close
to the town of Schaffhausen, the Rhine Falls (Rheinfall) is the
largest and most powerful waterfall in Europe, impressive not so
much for its height of 75ft (23m), but more for the mighty volume
of water thundering over its broad breadth.
