Zurich
— 5 nights

days
Zurich

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen and Hallenbad Altstetten. Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Lucerne (Lake Lucerne, Swiss Museum of Transport, & more), Parasailing & Paragliding (in Interlaken) and Bumblebee-Hanggliding (in Matten bei Interlaken). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Zoo Zürich, and get to know the fascinating history of Old Town (Altstadt).

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Zurich trip planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Zürich Airport and Basel Mulhouse Freiburg. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in August, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
