You’re in town for only two days? Too short, of course! But here is our Zurich-in-48-hours itinerary.
Day 1On your first day, start with a stroll through the old town, an absolute must for every Zurich visitor. The one-hour stroll in our free printed guidebook for instance will take you to all the main sights like the mediaeval Lindenhof Square as well as the churches St. Peter, Grossmünster and Fraumünster. But before you set off, consider buying a Zürich Card, which includes all public transport as well as free entry to many attractions (you can buy it here in advance).
To get back to Bellevue, take the ship (ship stop Casino to Bürkliplatz). There it’s time for a Zurich-style lunch: have the city’s most famous bratwurst (veal sausage) at Sternen Grill. Now how about some culture? The Kunsthaus with its excellent collection of modern art is a good choice.
