Around Zurich

As in Switzerland distances are relatively small, there are a lot of places one can visit outside of Zurich.

Winterthur (Switzerland’s 6th largest city) is a perfect destination, as it is only 20 minutes away from Zurich. It has 17 museums, and

Rapperswil-Jona is a town near Lake Zurich. It is a very beautiful medieval town  It is also called the town of roses, because of the astonishing rose gardens. Also this small town is home of Switzerland’s only circus museum.

The Rhine Falls (Rheinfall) are Europe’s largest plain waterfalls. They are 150m wide and 23m high. There are boat trips around the waterfall, and several bicycle tours.
