Zurich Travel Guide

Why? Set beneath snow-clad peaks on the shores of a glittering lake, a holiday in Zurich will move you not only with its typical Swiss neatness but also with its scenic setting. Quality oozes from the boutiques and along the promenades in this global financial centre, but after dark the sober bankers prove they can let their hair down in the dozens of bars, clubs and restaurants that thrive in the city.

When? The best time to travel to Zurich for a holiday is during the height of summer, in July and August, when the best weather is experienced. Spring and autumn are also good times to holiday in Zurich, but winter is cold, overcast and damp.

Who for? Sophisticated tourists and travellers who appreciate the finer things in life, from chocolate to scrupulously clean pavements, will savour a Zurich vacation.
