Zurich: why not?!?

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland with a total area of 87.88 km2. It has an oceanic climate with four major seasons, Summer, Winter, Spring and Autumn. Located near a sparkling lake and surrounded by the elevated mountains, Zurich consistently mixes the indoor and open air. You can ride a bicycle, get a boat and go for a saunter as the old town with its quirky shops and narrow roads offers luring walks and restless attractions. For the best perspectives of the city, jump on a train up an adjacent mountain. Also, this is a city that cherishes to party, with an energizing system of bars and clubs open into the little hours and past. Here are the five best things you should surely do if you are in Zurich:
