Located in the heart of Europe, the Swiss capital lies at the northwestern tip of the eponymous Lake Zurich. This cosmopolitan city is buzzing year-round with vibrant city life, while the relaxing and peaceful Alps are less than an hour away.

Lake Zurich provides an elegant focal point of the city, with daily cruises available to explore this vast lake. Many chic cafes and restaurants are dotted along the banks, epitomizing Zurich's urban and cosmopolitan vibe.

The Old Town, or Altstadt, is arguably one of the city's most beautiful areas, characterized by winding cobblestone streets and medieval-style architecture. Here, you'll discover some of Zurich's most iconic landmarks, such as St Peter's church with its impossibly large clock face, the largest clock in Europe.

If the weather isn't suited to wandering, there are over 50 museums within Zurich to explore. Go traditional with the Swiss National Museum, or opt for something a bit more exhilarating at the FIFA Museum.

Zurich's airport is the largest in Switzerland, and it is just 10 kilometers from the city center. Several train carriers, including the German Deutsche Bahn network, operate routes to Zurich from across Europe.

Konstanz is a city in southern Germany along the Swiss border. The Rhine River splits the city in half right before it feeds into Lake Constance, and this scenic setting makes Konstanz a popular leisure town in Germany. The historic Old Town quarter, unscathed by bombs in World War II, is remarkably preserved, with heavy Swiss influence. The Niederburg district is particularly alluring for visitors, as it is the oldest part of Konstanz. Some of the buildings here were built over 700 years ago. On Friday nights, enjoy live music, and shops open late for a welcoming and festive atmosphere in this area.

Don't miss a tour of Konstanz Cathedral, a structure whose construction spanned the years between 1100 and 1854. Climb its tower for breathtaking views of Lake Constance. Of course, other great activities are boating or kayaking on Lake Constance. The peaceful and scenic lake offers plenty of Instagrammable moments.

The nearest airports to Konstanz are Zurich Airport, Friedrichshafen Airport, and Stuttgart Airport. Both German and Swiss trains arrive at Konstanz Hauptbahnhof, so connecting to both countries' national rail networks is easy.
