Why It's Worth It

Whether or not you have a Swiss bank account, this leader of the financial world has a lot more going on than just banks and high-end watch shops. Zürich is home to Roman ruins, religious history, natural beauty, and of course their famous chocolate. Take in the breathtaking views of Lake Zürich, go shopping on the Bahnhofstrasse, and have lunch at a centuries-old beer hall all in the same day. —Marcin Zak
