Often associated with international banks, Zurich surprises visitors with its trendy neighborhoods and natural beauty. Its Alpine surroundings make it an ideal destination for nature lovers and passionate skiers, and many of the things to do in Zurich relate to the town's scenic landscapes. The sprawling Lake Zurich lures visitors with its sightseeing boat tours, walking paths, lush parks, and immaculate beaches like Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen. Famed for its well-preserved 19th-century architecture and cobblestoned lanes, the atmospheric Old Town (Altstadt) serves as a convenient starting point for tours around the city. Swiss National Museum and Kunsthaus stand out among the city's renowned galleries and museums.
