SWITZERLAND HIGHLIGHTS:

Zürich Play Movie
Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of Zürich. It is located in north-central Switzerland at the northwestern tip of Lake Zürich. Most of Zürich's sites are located within the area on either side of the Limmat, between the Main railway station and Lake Zürich. The churches and houses of the old town are clustered here, as are the most expensive shops along the famous Bahnhofstrasse. The Lindenhof in the old town is the historical site of the Roman castle, and the later Carolingian Imperial Palace.
Lucerne Play Movie
Lucerne is a city in central Switzerland, in the German-speaking portion of the country. Due to its location on the shore of Lake Lucerne (der Vierwaldstättersee), within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps, Lucerne has long been a destination for tourists. One of the city's famous landmarks is the Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke), a wooden bridge first erected in the 14th century. Another of it's most famous sites is Bertel Thorvaldsen's famous carving of a dying lion (the Lion Monument, or Löwendenkmal) which is found in a small park just off the Löwenplatz. The carving commemorates the hundreds of Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when an armed mob stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris.
Bahnhofstrasse Play Movie
Bahnhofstrasse is Zurich's main downtown street and one of the world's most expensive and exclusive shopping avenues. In 2011, a study named the Bahnhofstrasse the most expensive street for retail property in Europe, and the third most expensive worldwide.

Once populated by frogs croaking in the city moat, traffic began with the hacks in 1864. Followed by the horse drawn tramway (Rösslitram) and finally by the electric tram and automobile. Today most of the Bahnhofstrasse is a traffic free area. It's the most important location in Zurich for finance and business and the main promenade where exclusivity, quality and variety meet.
