How to Spend 2 Days in Zurich

How to Spend 2 Days in Zurich

With two days in Zurich, you can discover the historical and cultural attractions of Switzerland’s biggest city and still have time left to experience the natural highlights of the area. Here’s an itinerary that covers all the bases. 


Day 1: Explore the City

Morning

Get oriented with Zurich on an electric tuk-tuk tour, which covers major landmarks like the Grossmunster and Fraumunster in a short amount of time. Or see the sights that most interest you by booking a private tour, which can be customized to your preferences.

 

Afternoon

Indulge in Swiss chocolate on a sweets-themed walking tour, or combine top attractions with a cruise on Lake Zurich and a visit to the Lindt chocolate shop. For a culture fix, check out the Swiss National Museum to see gothic art, photography, pottery, and other artifacts that detail Switzerland’s history.

 

Night

Experience the art of cheese with a culinary tour that includes a fondue dinner. For a more hands-on activity, take a master class to learn how to pair cheese with wine.

 

Day 2: Enjoy surrounding experiences

Morning

Visit the largest waterfall in Europe on a half-day tour north of Zurich to Rhine Falls. This excursion also provides the chance to glimpse some of the countryside scenery outside the city. Options are also available to combine a trip to Rhine Falls with a stop in Stein am Rhein, a small town known for its medieval architecture.

 

Afternoon

Head south of the city center for a ferry ride across Lake Zurich and a ride up the Felsenegg Cable Car on a half-day tour that also includes a look at city highlights. From the cable car, at an elevation of 2,630 feet (800 meters), you can enjoy views of Lake Zurich, the city, and surrounding mountains.

 

Night

Enjoy a barbecue dinner with wine while cruising through the city on an electric tuk-tuk. You’ll explore neighborhoods such as the Niederdorf district of Old Town, the posh Bahnhofstrasse shopping area, and the Limmatquai, which runs along the Limmat River.
