    • Customs and immigration in flight transfer at Zurich airport

      Zürich Aug 6, 2013 at 12:12 PM

      Going though Zurich to Rome- how much time for customs and immigration? Flying through on Swiss Air but only have 1 hour and ten for connection. Do we have to go through immigration/customs if not our destination? Do we have to pick up and take luggage- thinking/hoping it is just transferred to next plane through airlines.

      24 hours in Zurich

      Zürich Jun 9, 2013 at 6:53 AM

      Hi guys,

      I'll be spending about 24 hours in Zurich prior to my return flight at night (late Oct) and am hoping to visit the following places. Appreciate your advise on the jam packed itinerary. I will be arriving in Zurich by train around 5pm and will be staying at the Youth Hostel. My flight on the following night is at 10pm.

      I'm hoping to visit the following attractions:
      - Old Town (Altstadt)
      - Church of Our Lady (Fraumunster)
      - Great Church (Grossmunster)
      - Lindenhofplatz
      - Uetliberg
      - Lake Zurich

      I initially planned to leave my luggage at Zurich HB train station prior to exploring. Just wondering how close these places are and if I'm able to be back by 6pm to the train station to make my way to the airport.

      Thanks guys!

    • Two Weeks in Zurich and Lucerne

      Kanton Zürich Feb 2, 2013 at 6:09 PM

      We are planning to spend two weeks in Switzerland in early June before we leave for Italy--one week in Zurich and the other in Lucerne. Will we be able to explore the high Alps from these two locations or would we be better to stay in other areas that would have major transportation connections for day trips as we will be using public transportation. We were hoping to stay in the Old Town of Zurich in an apartment or efficiency for one week and then move to Lucerne for the second week. Would appreciate any help before we purchase our plane tickets to Zurich.

    • Hotel in Zurich (City) vs. Mountains?

      Zürich Dec 27, 2012 at 11:05 AM

      Hi All! Sorry if this is a dumb question (I'm sure it is!) but my husband and I will be in Zurich in Feb for 3 nights and are looking for a hotel in the mountains.

      I'm not sure we'll actually ski but we're just looking for a hotel with lovely views etc. I'll be in Zurich earlier in the week for work (staying at Dolder Grand Hotel, which looks amazing), so for the weekend I was looking for something a bit different.

      But, if we stay in mountains somewhere and don't ski, do you think we'll be bored for three days? Is it better to just stay in Zurich?

      Any info is much appreciated!
