Zurich in 48 hours!

more than a year ago

You’re in town for only two days?
Too short, of course! But here is our Zurich-in-48-hours suggestion.

First Day

On 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. On a sunny day, climb up the the tower of Grossmünster church and enjoy the view over the city. After the stroll, walk over to Paradeplatz, for a coffee break at café Sprüngli, Zurich’s most famous confectioner. Don’t forget to try their trademark luxemburgerlis, macaroons in all kinds of flavours. Thus fortified, you’re ready for some action before lunch: take to the lake. From Bellevue walk along the lakeside until you reach the park Chinawiese and maybe drop into the Chinagarten for an unexpected glimpse of Chinese culture.
