A weekend away from Zurich

Travel Forums Europe A weekend away from Zurich

Next week I'm in Switzerland on business and then I have 3 days the weekend after to travel. I can leave from Zurich and don't want to spend a lot. Happy to get on a plane, although most of the flights out of Zurich are not exactly cheap. Also would be fine to get on a train - preferably a fast one. Thinking of Paris (4 hours) and Salzburg (about the same.) But I could use some suggestions of places to think about.

Thanks

You don't want to spend a lot, then you mention Paris, its a very expensive city, that said its a fantastic place to visit. Look at Budapest, Cologne, Rome, Berlin, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Prague-all cities i could happily spend 3 days
