Zurich: Spend Your Most Amazing Vacation In Zurich

One of the largest of Swiss cities, Zurich sits on Lake Zurich. I explored this place of lake jumping, mountain hiking, cathedral ascending and city mooching in April. Lake Zurich is filled with a gorgeous shade of turquoise, fresh water, clear enough to see through.

I stayed at the gorgeous Marktgasse boutique hotel located at the heart of the old town. It is like a maze of cobbled streets, colored shutter windows, shops and ice-cream stalls. The highlights are marshmallow pillows and duvets. The average meal pricing of eating out is around 17 CHF.

  • Uetliburg Summit

Hop on tram number 13 in the morning, to the end of Albisguetli and walk up to the small hill. It’s an intense walk and takes an hour to hike or 40 minutes. At the top, there are cafes and places to sit and enjoy the view.

  • Flussbad Oberer Letten

One may take an urban dip here, where people jump off the bridge and float down the river on inflatable. It’s safe to jump in, the water is glorious and the decent current weaves you down the river. One may even check the national museum and the beautiful gardens behind it.

  • Grossmunster

It is an iconic twin towered Romanesque cathedral, where 1500s religious reformer Huldrych Zwingli preached. It offers beautiful views and closes by 6 pm.

  • FIFA World Football Museum

It is an interactive experience world for the people of all ages, and is guaranteed to get all football fans’ pulses racing.

Besides, the restaurants around Lake Zurich offer culinary delights and magnificent view of the lake. Not to be missed, Fischer’s Fritz is said to serve the best Fischknusperli-fried fish. The Hirschen is seeing in Meilen or the Restaurant Schutzenhaus in Stafa also treat their guests to first-class fish straight from Lake Zurich.
