You can also head to Bahnhofstrasse, a major street that is lined with shops and cafes. Don’t miss out on going to Grossmünster, one of the largest cathedrals in the city that dates to the 12th century.

Winter in Zurich

It tends to be cold and snowy in Zurich during the winter months, so this can be a nice time to check out a museum or two. The Swiss National Museum is a great way to learn about the country’s history, while the Museum Rietberg specializes in non-European artwork. There is also the FIFA World Football Museum, which sports enthusiasts are certain to want to spend a few hours exploring. Be sure to book an SUV with winter equipment for winter trips to Zurich!
