• Zürich, Switzerland
    Fraumünster and the Münsterbrücke


Zürich is one of those cities that tourists tend to skip right through. Since it's a transportation hub, people fly in or change trains here, but don't give stopping a serious thought. The local graffiti jokes: Zürich = zu reich, zu ruhig ("too rich, too quiet"). But even though you won't find a hint of Swiss Miss in Switzerland's leading city — and with limited time in Switzerland, I'd certainly spend it up in the mountains — Zürich is rewarding and worth getting to know.
