Zurich

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Family-friendly places like Lake Zurich and Fraumünster Church will thrill your kids. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old Town and Town Hall. Step out of Zurich with an excursion to Lake Lucerne in Lucerne--about 1h 5 min away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Bahnhofstrasse, make a trip to Sechselautenplatz, tour the pleasant surroundings at Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen, and pause for some serene contemplation at Grossmunster.

To see maps, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Zurich day trip planning tool.

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Zurich is an approximately 16-hour flight. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -4.5 hour difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) in October, with highs in Zurich at 17°C and lows at 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Interlaken.

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
Get in touch with nature at Aletsch Glacier and Parasailing & Paragliding. Go for a jaunt from Interlaken to Brienz to see Axalp about 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Trümmelbachfälle.

Traveling by car from Zurich to Interlaken takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In October in Interlaken, expect temperatures between 16°C during the day and 6°C at night. On the 20th (Sat), you're off to Geneva.
