Lake Zurich

Flanked by verdant hills, the majestic Lake Zurich spans the cantons of Zürich, St. Gallen and Schwyz. The lake is bridged by the Seedamm at the point where it narrows, diving Lake Zurich into two distinct parts. Carved out by the ambling Linth River, this enormous lake is fringed by vineyards, orchards and splendid alpine hillocks. Myriad cruise ships ply its shimmering, blue-green waters, making it an ideal tourist destination replete with opportunities for adventure. Along its banks lie a wide variety of lake-view restaurants where patrons can relish 'Fischknusperli', a dish made using fish straight from the lake's depths. In addition, Lake Zurich is a popular windsurfing destination, and several idyllic hiking and biking trails wind around its perimeter. Particularly on public holidays, the lake is swarmed by boats and its banks with strolling people.

Lindenhof

Amid the city's bustle lies a serene sanctum complete with tree-lined walkways and the ornate Hedwig Fountain. This moraine hill-top space is a picturesque canvas and a nationally significant Swiss heritage site. Evidence of early activity dates back to the 2nd Century, and it is believed that the former castle remained standing through the 6th Century. Lindenhof also became a center of political activity and significant historic events. Home to the antiquated Lindenhof quarter, Lindenhof hill is where a synergy of history, culture, and natural beauty takes center stage. What today stands as an open verdant space is an erstwhile Celtic settlement harboring a Roman fortress, the ruins of which are still visible today. This scenic, emerald-hued expanse affords sweeping views of Old Town's charming roofed houses, the meandering waters of the Limmat River, and even the distant, mighty Swiss Alps.

Üetliberg

Nestled in the sprawling Swiss Plateau, the majestic Üetliberg mountain affords an awe-inspiring panorama. An integral piece of the Albis chain, this mighty mount towers over Zurich's charming roofed houses, playing an ideal vantage point to look across Lake Zurich, the Alps, and Zurich's cityscape in all its glory. Its forested fabric is crisscrossed by hiking trails, mountain bike paths as well as the extensive Planet Trail. 'Zurich's very own mountain' is further dotted with jubilant water fountains, campsites, and hotels and is an outdoor wonder par excellence. This mountain also offers views of the majestic, rolling expanse of the Limmat Valley. Bursting at the seams with diverse flora like the wild garlic come spring, this mountain is a naturalist's dream and an adventurer's wonderland. During winter, the snow-capped range is ideal for skiing and sledding, making Üetliberg a top destination for both summer and winter sports enthusiasts.

Kapellbrücke

Constructed in 1333, Kapellbrücke is the oldest covered wooden bridge in all of Europe. The truss-style landmark crosses the Reuss River and features a prominent water tower, which was originally constructed as part of the fortification for the city and used later as a treasury, prison, and torture chamber. Named for nearby St. Peter's Chapel, the bridge also houses paintings dating back to the 1600s though many of its artworks have unfortunately been destroyed over time. Today, Kapellbrücke is one of the most photographed landmarks in Lucerne and makes for a supremely pleasant addition to any itinerary.

Rigi

Known as 'Queen of Mountains', Rigi is a spectacular mountain in the Alps in Central Switzerland. It is surrounded by water on three sides by three lakes which add to the beauty of this mountain. There are a lot of recreational facilities and opportunities at the mountain. It is an ideal location for those who enjoy hiking, skiing and other such activities. There are well-directed trails for those who love to take walks.

Old Town Lucerne

Trace the history of Lucerne by exploring the Old Town which overlooks the River Reuss. The stretch between Kapellbrücke and the city hall is regarded as the Old Town. Moreover, several restaurants with patios dot the streets overlooking the River Reuss, giving this place a romantic charm.
