... our holiday fun we decided on an exceptionally early start to the day (i.e before the sun came up) and headed up to Jangfrau - the 'Top of Europe'. It was nothing short of spectacular.

Zurich isn't a huge city by any means, there are no tall buildings and it seems as though the majority of businesses are located outside of the downtown area.
