Interlaken – This is a city in Switzerland. Most of the tourists stay here. It is located between two lakes – Breinzersee and Thunersee. Hence the name “Inter-laken”. Both of them are beautiful lakes. Breinzersee is the bigger one. If you have a Swiss pass, then you can take “Golden Panorama” Tour. It goes by the lake and you get a beautiful panoramic view. If you have a car, then you don’t have to take the Golden Panorama tour. You can drive by the side of the lake. It goes parallel to the train track and you essentially get the same view. Advantage with the car is that you can stop anywhere you want and have a nice photo session and more importantly enjoy the nature as long as you want.

Zurich – Zurich is the one of the most populous city in Swiss. Here you can go for Swiss Bank & stock Exchange.
