Autumn in Zurich - museums, thermal baths and laser tag


Wisps of mist creeping over Lake Zurich, defiant sun beams breaking through clouds and colourful leaves rustling on the ground - yes, autumn can be beautiful in Zurich. And if the mist becomes a thick fog, you can escape its calm, grey clutches by simply moving upwards. Indeed, Zurich has a simple solution to a sunshine deficit. Just take a short ride up to Zurich’s Uetliberg, or mountains farther afield, and you’ll feel the sun’s warmth in no time.

But even if the weather lets you down, there’s plenty to do in the nation’s largest city. The Swiss National Museum just opened its daring concrete extension making this venerable institution a new must-see piece of architecture. If, however, your body could use some recreation, a visit to one of Zurich’s thermal baths might be just the thing to do when the autumn blues get to you. In our all-new Leisure chapter you will find some more playful options like laser tag or escape rooms that seem to be all the rage this year.

And if you’ve worked up an appetite exploring the city’s sights, Zurich’s culinary scene won’t disappoint. Our restaurant chapter will guide you through the gastronomic jungle. Enjoy Zurich and all it has to offer this autumn!
