      • Zürich
        These days the largest city in Switzerland is known for two things above all else: a high quality of life (the city consistently comes out near the top of those annual ‘best place to live’ surveys) and banking, which both Zurich and the rest of the country are abundant in to the point of obsession. The banking might be dull, but then again, it’s probably a major contributor to that quality of life.

        Of course, for the casual tourist neither of these things is of particular interest, and its architecture lovers who’ll find the quaint sights of the city center the biggest draw. A mammoth selection of aging churches, many of them dating back more than a millennia, is one of the key attractions, with the skyline dripping with spires. Recently, Zurich has taken an eye to design, in both the pricey boutiques and a selection of enticing museums.

        The Haus Konstruktiv is a new conceptual art site housed in a power station, promoting a highly abstract brand of modern art, while the Museum of Design Zurich focuses on internationally significant pieces of poster design and applied art. Those with a more traditional taste in museums might prefer offerings like the Uhrenmuseum Beyer (a history of clocks, accompanying the nearby largest clock face in Europe, attached to St Peter’s) or the Swiss National Museum.

        The old-world vibes of the city’s heart are a major draw, but you’ll find still more alluring sights around the region, like the castle (and views from) Lindenhof Hill or in exploring the full extent of the mammoth Lake Zurich. Head a little further afield and you’ll find a plethora of high-end ski resorts, the Hollgrotten (dripstone caves, a colorful underground world of water-formed columns) and boat tours or water sports across a huge array of enticing – if freezing cold – lakes.

        Zurich is one of the most expensive spots in Europe, and also lacks that one stand out attraction that makes it a must see. Problematic though that is, many visitors love the city for its mix of well-maintained history and cutting edge modernity.

      • Schaffhausen
        Schaffhausen is a city in Northern Switzerland and the capital of the Swiss Kanton with the same name. It has a population of 35,000 inhabitants and it's located near the German border.

        It was mistakenly bombed by the USAF during WWII thinking that this was Germany, but there are many remains of its renaissance past (buildings, towers and doors from the 18th Century). Over the medieval Old Town of Schaffhausen looms the imposing Munot fortress.

        The most remarkable touristic point of Schaffhausen is the Rheinfall located in Neuhausen, the point where the Rhine River was born. It is a spectacular waterfall which deserves your visit.

      • Lucerne
        Aside from being the spot where William Tell allegedly demonstrated his archery skills by nearly decapitating his son (and, fortunately, hitting a carefully balanced apple instead), Lucerne has few claims to fame that stretch beyond picturesque, old-world beauty and a truly striking location.

        In travel, of course, location is everything, and most people who drop in on this town do so with the intention of strapping on their hiking boots or kitting up their mountain bike before heading for the hills. Lucerne has plenty of its own charms, though, most of them in the pure ‘Swiss village-ness’ of it all. The impressive Chapel Bridge has become a symbol of Lucerne, though the version you’ll find now is a replacement for the original, which burnt down in 1993. Inside the delicate wooden struts of the structure you’ll find images of 12th century life in Lucerne, a charming taste of local history.

        Elsewhere you’ll find most eyes are on the mountains: Lucerne has its own glacier gardens, alpine flower garden and boat tours that head to the base of the nearby mountains and provide impressive, close up panoramas. Mount Pilatus is so close to the town that it seems to almost hover over the center, and can be ascended by breathtakingly steep cog railway for still more intense panoramas. If you do manage to avoid the draw of the mountains for a day or two, Lucerne’s compact old town is a maze of delicate passageways that seem to have changed little over the years, as well as being home to an artistic bent – many of the walls are coated in color, with local artists depicting anything from rural scenes to offbeat, colorful modern art.

        Whether you see the city as another semi-urban gateway into the glorious Swiss Alps, or you’re here for the place itself, Lucerne certainly has plenty to offer given its modest size. If you enjoy a sense of history blended with a difficult to match small-town, old-world feel and plenty of snowy peaks, you’ll find Lucerne the perfect spot.

        • From the customs officer who stamped our passports to the attendant at the gate all the staff were so friendly. On top of that, it was the cleanest airport I've ever been to. Yes, even the restrooms were clean. The other thing that was nice was that the gate waiting area actually had plenty of room for the passengers to wait comfortably to board. The only thing of note that cost a star is the prices of sodas and snacks that are higher than any other airport we've been to. I hope that in the future any connecting flight out of Europe is out of the Zurich airport.
        • This airport is getting worse and worse each year. Could you bother to explain your passengers what is the purpose of security check RIGHT AFTER THE PLANE? Personnel is totally caddish, searching through passengers' belongings WITHOUT THEIR GLOVES put on. What's that supposed to mean?? Sadistically enjoying your power? Feeling absolutely untouchable?? As usual? Yes, they are clearly enjoying themselves: when people tell them they have a short flight connection, they are just smiling.
        • Had a poor experience at the airport, was a pity because the airport was clean, well designed and well maintained. Visually inside is aesthetically pleasing, ambiance & lighting are well done and thought out. There are ample shops, restaurants and other amenities, eg sitting area, toilets, sign boards, escalators & lifts. The staff at the airport were another issue. Its was visible that they were understaffed, hand baggage checkpoints had a long queue time, info counter had many people milled about hoping to get the info staff to talk to them. It took me almost 2 hrs of queue time to clear the customs. There were about 4 post opened for estimated about 1200 people. This was at Gate E. I'm sure some poor chaps missed their flights. Announcements were in German, surprisingly there were no English translations. Really hope things can improve there.
        • Horrible security check at gate A,D 06/11/2016 around 9 p.m. Because of their poor professional skills I missed my flight. There were a lot of people late for connection flights and they would not open second checking point for a long time. When I passed security gate and it beeped I was waiting 5 minutes to be checked, When I told I am late to my flight, please check me, the guy told me to "shut up and wait". He held me for 5 minutes and then checked my bag, not even me!! Thanks to him, I missed my flight. I really hope the airport administration can review their performance and ethical behavior. I do realize the importance of thorough security check these days, but cannot tolerate arrogance and rudeness of the security staff. This is the first time then I faced such low conduct.
        • It's one of my favorite airports and things usually go very smoothly. Flights taking off from gate E have been painful though recently. The Security Organisation is fairly poor and could be streamlined quite a bit. The additional passport checks for US flights are redundant and very inconvenient. Last time, even with a spare hour, I almost missed the flight because of it. The queues for those checkpoints in gate E are ridiculous.
