Easter weekend day/overnight trips from Zürich?

Can anyone share some ideas on things to do over Easter weekend with guests coming into town? I have been in Zürich the past 3 years over Easter weekend and it is really dead--everything is closed beginning Good Friday through Easter Monday.

Any nearby cities (relatively close to Zürich for a day trip or overnight stay) to visit which might have some things open? I am not necessarily interested in retail, but moreso restaurants, coffee shops, museums, etc.? I was thinking Ticino would be nice, but is everything also closed there? How about Como? Strasbourg? Munich?

Thanks in advance for your ideas!

As A meatter of interest, why is Zurich closed for Easter. I never thought of it as being particularly religious or did I get that wrong?

Great family event if they like sports - World Women's Hockey Championships being hosted by Switzerland in Winterthur and Zurich (at the Hallenstadion). cheap (some free) tickets and it's the top 8 teams in the world.
