What to Do in Zurich

Kunsthaus Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

Even in the height of summer, this expansive gallery is almost all yours. Swoon at Monet’s immersive water lilies or recoil at Van Gogh’s famous self-portrait with his ear cut off. Alongside pastoral scenes of Switzerland’s past, the collection includes works by baroque Flemish and Italian painters, minimalist canvases by Mondrian, and a number of works by surrealists of the Dada movement. Don’t miss the spindly creatures from local hero Giacometti.

Boat trip on the Zurichsee

Zurich, Switzerland

Take a trip on the glassy Zurichsee lake that is the Zurichsee in a very comfortable boat that will take past the picturesque villages which are dotted along the shores. Stop off at Küsnacht, the home of Carl Jung, for a quick stroll through Swiss history
