Hello Julia, welcome to our forum! From Zurich airport it's a 10 minute train ride
to the main railway station in Zurich city centre.
From the main station, you have plenty of options to discover the city.
- You may purchase a Zurich Card
, which offers free use of public transport and free access to museums during one day.
- A beautiful viewing point which can be reached with this card is the Uetliberg
(tram line 10), offering views of the city, the lake and (in clear weather) the Alps.
- You could also visit the Swiss national museum
right across the main railway station.
- Another tip: stroll along the old part of the city, take a rest break at park Lindenhof with views of the river Limmat and end up along the lake shore. You could take a boat trip here or enjoy the park-like garden.
Zurich is a large city which has lots to offer for a 1 day stay. Good luck on making your choice!
