Planning Your Visit
Best time to visit?
The stunning landscape makes Zurich a charming place to visit in all seasons, but if you really can't stand the cold then you should probably stick to peak season – June to August.
How many days?
You could satisfy your city-sightseeing urges within a couple of days, but it would be silly not to book an extra day at least to visit the Alps, and perhaps another to take advantage of Zurich's museums. All in all, four or five should be perfect!
Best area to stay?
Staying around the Old Town is certainly most convenient for visitors, but where exactly takes a little more research. Niederdorf is a mostly pedestrian area full of lively bars and restaurants, but if that sounds a little too busy, then try the slightly quieter Lindenhof. Seefeld is a popular lakeside district, but at the opposite end you'll find Enge & Wollishofen, which is considerably more relaxing if only because it's further from the sights!

What people are saying about Zurich
For those of you reading this, know that I am an introvert who is also scared of new experiences and meeting people. This was my first solo trip ever and I am so proud of myself for doing it. I met really wonderful, kind and helpful people of this trip. Our tour guide Franz Husmann, Pink and driver Josie were amazing. Swiss people are very punctual and organised, no kidding! I had no trouble in the entire trip. Everything was smooth and very well planned. Thank you Team. Hope to plan many more trips with you.
An all-round successful day and trip! We started punctually at 8 a.m. with a minibus in Zurich. Evan, our driver was very personable and knowledgeable. He speaks very good and understandable English and provided us with all the necessary information. It is important to follow the weather forecast before booking your trip, because the trip is only worthwhile when the weather is nice. The weather report on the Jungfraujoch homepage was reliable in our case.
Highly recommend. If you are limited on time this tour will give you a good overview of the city.
Everything run very smoothly from start to the end of the day
The perfect way to finish a busy weekend, total relaxation
