Anna thanks for all your help. My wife have been in Zurich since 10/22.
We received our Swiss COVID certificates (blue app that we downloaded) within 18-36 hours. Most restaurants that we visited scanned the bar code and then asked for ID to make sure our names matched. We showed our drivers license.
The weather during the day starts at about mid 40’s. Got up to the low 60’s yesterday, Tuesday 10/26, and as one walks a lot, it felt warmer than low 60’s.
We are headed to Lucerne today, 10/27 to start our Viking tour/ river cruise
Everything has gone seemingly very smooth. The people here are very nice. Our hotel staff at the Zurich Marriott have been fantastic.
We will need to show them our PCR Covid test. Since we were in Switzerland more than 4 days, Viking wants us to prove that we are negative before joining up with them. We found a place in the Radisson Blu, 9th floor located in the airport area. It cost us $119 CHF and that is the cheapest that we could find. The catch here is that you need to make advanced reservation to get the price. Here is the link; zrh.viselio.com/
One last thing, Switzerland and specifically Zurich is expensive if you compare it the USA / Texas prices We knew this coming in so just enjoy and spend for this part of the world is beautiful.
