  • This funicular goes high up into the hills above the old town (and free with Zurich Card) Lovely views as you travel through the woods and homes above the city. However, the viewing from the summit is...  more »
  • We went on a tour with friends! And it was worth it to take the high ground. In addition to the Nice and safe environment for children, one has the chance to have a great view of the Lake (Lake Zurich) and on all of the surrounding landscape. Access to this place is itself a pleasant trip to 'train'. Our children are fun there! Well, incidentally, the view of the GRAND HOTEL is not unpleasant! If you pass by Zurich, try to find time to take a look... you will be as satisfied with this little detour!

  • We can ride free to Dolderbahn of municipal train. I got off the city sightseeing bus and went to the terminal station. The journey time was about 5 minutes. In the train, the motor driven gear in the middle of the train moves in engagement with the third rail in the middle of the rail. It is a small and pretty train. It is my favorite.
  • Another rope way in Zürich, operates about every 10 minutes.

Where to stay in Zurich

As the financial hub of the country, it shouldn't come as a surprise that staying in Zurich usually comes at a price. The city puts emphasis on its glamorous four- and five-star hotels and international chains that appeal to traveling professionals. There a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler. When staying in Zurich, you'll find that the majority of the accommodation offerings are in close proximity to the city core, either on the left or right bank. The left bank is the glitzier of the two, with its grand restaurants, shops, and proximity to the banks and train station. The right side, as home to the Old Town, charms with its historical atmosphere. Here you'll find independently owned boutique hotels and some mid-range options. The city also sports several hotels geared toward wellness, with spas and saunas. These tend to be pricey too, but you're guaranteed a truly relaxing retreat.
