This city has a lot to offer from adventure sports to quiet relaxing environment. Centrally placed in Europe, logistically perfect for Eurotrips.

Great location with easy access to towns and villages nearby or afar by bus or train. Boat trips on the lake, cable cars up the mountains and lots of places to have coffee and cake or a glass of wine - really great place.
