My family drove up to Waldshut just to buy new dishes over the border and ended up spending the whole day there. I loved this little town! The people are VERY friendly and we had one of the best meals I have had in a long time. It is a very old, historisc little city with beautiful architecture.
Waldshut is about 1 hour from Zurich (30 min. from Bülach) and has a ‘Bahnhofstrasse’ with lots of shopping and restaurants. This would be a good 1/2 day outing. My husband said that it reminded him of Murten here in Switzerland.
Basically, if you want a small, beautiful, old-town feel in another country (we know how our American guests LOVE to tell people that they went to Switzerland AND another country ;)), then this might be a good fit. Aufwieeeeedersehen!

The pedestrian zone in the old town.
My son loved jumping over the waterway in the middle of the street.
Lots of statues.
Fountain as well.
