Zurich

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Rhine Falls, Voralpen-Express and Gotthard Panorama Express. Family-friendly places like Old Town and Jesuitenkirche will thrill your kids. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kathedrale St.Gallen and Museum Rietberg. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Zurich: Schloss Laufen (in Dachsen), Kloster Einsiedeln (in Einsiedeln) and Schaffhausen (Altstadt Schaffhausen & Museum zu Allerheiligen). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Limmatquai, get to know the fascinating history of Bleicheli Stadtlounge, admire the striking features of Church of St. Peter, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hofkirche.

Interlaken

— 5 nights
Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
You've added Grindelwald-First, Titlis, Jungfraujoch, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bernisches Historisches Museum - Einstein Museum and First Cliff Walk by Tissot. Kids will appreciate attractions like Titlis Cliff Walk and Engelberg Fuerenalp. Change things up with a short trip to The Wetterhorn in Grindelwald (about 50 minutes away). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Grindelwald Museum and take in the awesome beauty at The Monch.
