After your day of exploring, you can return to Zurich and enjoy the comforts of this dynamic metropolis with its exceptional infrastructure, diverse nightlife, rich cultural heritage and gastronomic delights.

Zurich means variety

Zurich combines creative urban life with idyllic natural landscapes, and all in the smallest of areas. Art connoisseurs and culture enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice with more than 50 museums and over 100 galleries, while curious city lovers can explore the constant juxtaposition of picturesque old town and modern neighborhoods. Nature enthusiasts looking for fresh air and lush green landscapes will enjoy the lakeside location, the many forests and parks, and Zurich’s local mountain, the Uetliberg, while the liveliest nightlife in Switzerland will be sure to tempt night-owls and the young at heart.

Day-trip destinations right on the doorstep

Rapperswil, the Riviera on the upper half of Lake Zurich, maintains its promise of southern charm. The small and quaint alleys of the medieval old part of town invite visitors to a charming stroll or spot of window shopping. The Swiss Alps are an easy day trip from Zurich. Titlis in Central Switzerland, the Rigi on Lake Lucerne and the famous Jungfraujoch in the Bernese Oberland are all just an hour or two’s drive away. Even the stunning Rhine Falls, where visitors can experience the power of water as 600,000 liters per second flow into the Rhine basin, is not far away.
