I am planning on flying Swissair from Boston to Rome in October. The flight from Rome changes planes in Zurich on the return. I would like to break the trip to visit a friend who lives about 50 miles from Zurich for a 3 day layover and then pick up the flight sequence to Boston after the 3 day visit. Will Swissair allow that or make me pay a surcharge? Do I need a visa to leave the airport? I carry an USA passport.
Hello, I have slightly more than a week in Zurich when I head there in September 2015. I know that accommodation can be expensive in Switzerland, thus, is it possible to take day trips from Zurich and get a train pass instead? I am interested to visit Interlaken, Bern, the Jungfrau region and Lucerne. I am staying with a family member in Zurich, therefore I wondered if I could just take day trips in and out of Zurich each day? Appreciate your advice. Thanks.
I am flying on an Indian passport from Delhi to Toronto via Zurich (Layover 3 hours) - do i need a Airport Transit Visa?
I am flying on 23rd May, 2015.
I am visiting Zurich by the 20/4/2015 for business purposes. I want to add some fun activity to my visit apart from the business meetings. Looking for suggestions for some guided tours in the area.
I'm arriving in Zurich at 9:40pm on a Wednesday evening in June, and flying out (back home to Canada) the next morning at 9:30am. I would love to check out Zurich in my limited time. I hope my plan is possible. Any advice?
My tentative plan:
Arrive and be out of the airport by 11pm (approx?)
Take public transit to Zurich HB Stn
Check into a hotel within 10-15 minutes walking distance from this station (possibly finding something under 200 CFH? Suggestions?)
Walk around and check out the Old town, wander a bit and find some late night drinks and food - something with local feel (Suggestions?)
Back to hotel to sleep for a couple hours, then grab a sunrise coffee and catch train back to airport at 6:30am (enough time for a 9:30am flight?)
I really hope I can make this work. Thank you in advance for any feedback :)
it has been a few years since I went to Europe just want to find out if I can pay via credit card now or I still have to pay cash.

Will be landing in zurich airport at 21:50 just as "transfer" to the next flight on 22:45 to Israel. The inbound flight comes from Warsaw, Poland (schengen block) probably to the main part of the airport and the next flight will be leaving from gate E bulding which is not the same building as the main area of arrival. It is "transfer" with Swiss. I have Polish citizenship and passport. How EXACTLY should I go from the place of getting off board the first flight, to the place of E gates, in just 30 minutes? does anyone can explain it as I've never been in this airport (or Zurich) before?

My son of 15 is going to Winterthur from mid august to mid september. The purpose is to learn German, and he¨ll be attending classes, but only for 2 hrs. a day. So he¨ll have a lot of free time, and I¨m hoping that somebody can give me some ideas about how to fill out the remaining time, preferably in german speaking company. He plays the piano, he¨s a good swimmer, but he doesn¨t really like other sports, he likes photografy and computers, Maybe someone knows of some computerclasses. Thank you so much..

I am a US citizen and I booked a flight from Boston to Barcelona via Zurich on Swiss airlines. My layover in Zurich is 5 hours. I am wondering if I have enough time to quickly enjoy Zurich before I depart for Barcelona. I've read that by train, it is about 10-15 minutes to Zurich.
A few questions...
1. Will my luggage go straight to Barcelona as I am booked to Barcelona on the same airline (Swiss) or will I have to get my luggage and re-check it in?
2. If my luggage is indeed going all the way through to Barcelona, can I go through passport control and exit the airport even though my check in luggage is still at the airport?
3. For a 16:00 Swiss flight from Zurich to Barcelona, what time should I plan on arriving at the Zurich airport?
I understand that under the very best circumstances, my time in Zurich will be very limited. Even just an hour to walk around would make it worth it to me.

I will have to kill 2 hrs and, on the way back home, 3 hrs at Zürich airport, any ideas on what I could do during this time? I guess the time is too short for a short visit to the city centre? Is there anything special one can do at Zürich airport besides having something to eat or checking out the shops?
Many thanks in advance!
