Our getaways to Zurich are carefully put together to cover all the iconic sights and must-do activities, so you will get the best of your getaway. And if you have something special in mind, we will be happy to customize the itierary for you. 

A city of Zurich, a great choice for a Switzerland city break

“You go to a place for a visit and deep in your heart you think that this place can be your own home and Zurich is such a place!”

Short Breaks to Zurich FAQ

Absolutely. When choosing a great destination for city breaks, Zurich is surely a place to consider. This place is famous for its excellent museums, outstanding galleries, delicious cuisine, and many other things that attract travelers from all over the world.

A city break in Zurich should be at least 3 days long, as this is about enough time to visit the most famous sights of the city without the need to rush through everything. Spending 4 days in Zurich allows you to add a day trip to your itinerary to explore the gems of the nearby area, spicing up the experience.

If you are traveling on a tight budget, Switzerland is famously not the best choice for a city break. Zurich is a wonderful city, but the prices can bite. For example, a small bottle of water can cost up to 4.5 EUR, a regular cappuccino up to 5.50 EUR, and you will have to pay at least 15 EUR for a McMeal at McDonald’s.

Most travelers choose summer to enjoy their city breaks in Zurich, which means that the city can be rather crowded from early June till late August. So we advise considering early autumn or late spring, as it allows you to enjoy the warm weather and avoid the pitfalls of the tourist season’s pick. On the other hand, don’t forget that going on a Zurich weekend trip completely off-season (in November or February) will allow you to save a pretty penny.

No weekend trip to Zurich can go without exploring the traditional regional cuisine. The city is famous for its Zurcher Geschnetzeltes (a delicious sliced veal in gravy), Burli (crusty bread rolls), and the famous fondu. The German influence is very easy to see in Zurich’s local dishes, so you can expect to enjoy a lot of hearty deliciousness during your trip.

Sure! Short breaks to Zurich offer some fantastic shopping opportunities, as the city houses plenty of high-end fashion venues and stylish boutiques set on the Bahnhofstrasse, one of the city’s most famous streets. But if you are not ready to spend thousands of dollars on a pair of shoes, you can still enjoy shopping during your trip. Zurich has plenty of small atmospheric shops offering local goods and big mass-market brands such as Zara and H&M.
