Day 1 : Zurich and its old city

Visit of the old town, its narrow and picturesque streets. You can climb the stairs of one of the two towers of Grossmünster Cathedral to discover a breathtaking view of the city and the lake (to avoid for people prone to vertigo). Always on the right bank, do not miss the Neumarkt, the Spiegelgasse and other treasures of the medieval district. After lunch in one of the restaurants on Niederhofstrasse, you can walk along the left bank of the Limmat along the Wühre, then take a walk through the Bahnhofstrasse luxury shopping district with a break at Café Sprüngli for a delicious snack. Afterwards, you can visit the Swiss National Museum and discover Swiss history and culture before relaxing on the benches of the pleasant wooded park of Platzspitz. After dinner, go to the Q club in the trendy Zürich-West district for a live concert or house music.

Day 2 : Day on the shore of the lake

Departure in the morning for a cruise on the lake with lunch on board and discovery of the villages on the coast. On return, it is possible to disembark at the Zürichhorn to visit the Chinese Garden, a small landscaping with its tiny pieces of water populated with fish, its bushes-cut bushes and the sound decor of the bird pépiements. After this visit, you can take a head in the lake to the baths Seebad Utoquai, adjacent to the garden. The most motivated will join the centre by following the lakeside, the most tired will jump in a tram to reach the old town and offer a dinner in the chic brasserie Bierhalle Kopf.
