Our two-day detour to Zurich, Switzerland was more about meeting up with longtime friends for the US vs Switzerland soccer match than it was about visiting the city itself. However, we devised a Zurich self-guided walking tour that would take us through the pristine city, down the shopping lanes, to a few churches and viewpoints, with enough time for lunch, chocolates and beers. Come along with us to see the sights of the city on our Zurich Self-Guided Walking Tour (map below).

We started our Zurich Self-Guided Walking Tour at the Paradeplatz tram station in the city center. Heading north on Bahnhofstrasse, we gawked at the expensive watches glittering in the window displays. The street is flooded with fashionable high-end retailers, boutiques and banks.
