Hello,

I am travelling to Europe at the end of January and have a full day stopover in zurich. I would love to go to mount Titlis for the day. Does this make sense? What else can I do if the weather is bad?

thanks!

Hello Traveller38,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

You can go to Titlis if you have a full day in Zurich. I have attached details of Titlis along with the weather cam:

In case the weather is not ideal that day, there are various activities you can do in Lucerne, please see the below links:

Here is a link on Zurich:

You might want consider getting the Saver Day Pass for your train travels. The sooner you purchase the pass, the better the price is. They have a limited amount available and they sell out:

Please also familiar yourself with the train timetable and download the SBB app on your smart phone:

I hope this helps!

Best regards,

Suzanne

Thank you for all the helpful information. I will be landing at 10:30 pm to zurich airport. Is the best place to stay by a airport hotel? Are those boat rides that you mentioned above good for the winter too?

Thanks

Hello Traveller38,

Nice to hear you're coming to Switzerland.

I would maybe consider an Airport hotel by Zurich, as you will be leaving via Airport again.
- www.myswissalps.com/zurichairporthotels
- www.myswissalps.com/airports/zurich
- www.myswissalps.com/zurich/hotels, for alternative options in the city centre

And YES, all the activities suggested by Suzanne are also do-able in winter, obviously with lower temperatures, etc.
- www.myswissalps.com/weather
- www.myswissalps.com/aboutswitzerland/practical/websites, I use the MeteoSWISS app for weather forecast

When will you be leaving Zurich again the next day?!

I'm just asking, because you could also join a guided trip to Mount Titlis from Zurich, which is back around 7 pm normally. Could maybe make things easier.

Hope this provides some helpful input. Otherwise get back to us anytime.

Best,
Steph
