Leaving in a week for Zurich - What to do in advance?

by RachelFersh

Hello trusted advisers!

We leave in a week for Zurich, Lucerne, Murren, Montreux, Gruyere, Bern, etc. We have passports, plane tickets, and accommodations, but not much else.

Please let me know what else you think we should do or reserve ahead! Are any train passes or routes difficult to purchase the day of? Do we need advance tickets for Mount Pilatus or Chateau Chillon or any of the Zurich museums?

We'd love to be as flexible in our plans as we can, but I know summer can me very crowded and I don't want to miss out on anything major.

Thank you!
-Rachel

Make sure to spend some time lingering on the "old bridge" (old one burnt down, but the new old one is a replica) in Lucerne. That is one of my favorite places in Switzerland.

We went in August a couple of years back and there was nothing we needed to reserve in advance. The only thing I'd advise is checking the weather, we had bad weather for the day we went to Zermatt and the day we went to the top of Mt. Pilateus near Lucerne and it definitely was a bummer not to be able to see the Matterhorn. Make sure you try fondue or raclette in Gruyere if you are cheese fans, my favorite meal in Switzerland!

I can also recommend the Swiss Flexi Pass and apart from all the services already listed, it gets you free entrance to over 400 museums in Switzerland, so don't buy tickets for those Zurich museums if you are planning on getting a Flexi Pass. As for the weather on the mountains on any day, most hotels have weathercam access and can show you first hand what the weather is like "up there" at the moment.

Bahnhof Strasse

by Erkmen

Before going to Zurich, I didnt have time to search for sites.. All I could find about was the Bahnhof strasse (Main station street)..

So When I reached the main train station, I go out and Bahnhof strasse was just infront of me.. Just in front of the station there was a fountain, so I couldnt move without having a photo of the train station and the fountain behind me..

Bahnhof street is a pedestrainized street, only tram is passing and shoppers.. The street is full of jewellery, Watches and Clothes shops.. But only after some time I realized that its not my style, So it was a bit a tourist trap..

A friend in need - Swiss Army knife

by csordila

The Victorinox Schweizer Offiziers- und Sportmesser was invented in the late 1800s by Carl Elsener - a Swiss master cutler, who recognised that soldiers needed high-quality utensils they could carry easily and always keep close to hand.
His company’s name is a classic, like Kodak or Rolex. Elsener combined his mother’s name Victoria with "inox", the shortened name for "inoxydable" (stainless steel in French).
As the official supplier of knives to the Swiss Army from 1891, Victorinox was able to register the name in key markets.
By World War II, shops of the US Army sold the "Swiss Officer's Knife" in large quantities and US soldiers were enthusiastic about the multi-tooled pocket knife. Because it was hard to pronounce Offiziermesser, they began calling it "Swiss Army knife".

It is a great success of the company that these pocket tools nowadays carried by almost everyone all over the world including NASA shuttle flights into space, and some people even collect them.

There are always some...

by Sirod

There are always some festivals or events at Zürich. 1. of August is national day - a must see! The 'Landesmuseum' is very nice made. Most of Zürich- Feeling you will get inside a restaurant ( the favorite 'hobby' of the people of Zürich ) or on the streets - see nightlife.

The Rhine Falls -- Largest Falls in Europe
Formed during the ice age, 17’000 - 14’000 years ago. While there you can visit the The medieval castle Schloss Laufen
On the hilltop. Schloss Laufen (Castle Walk/Run) offers facilities such as dining, refreshments and shopping. It is accessable by car with parking nearby. While there it was worth paying the small fee, 2F i believe, to walk down to the observation platform to get a close up view of the falls. Their also is a boat you can take that brings you to an extraordinary rock formation in between the falls. Below is some useful information.

Interesting facts

Width of the Rhine Falls - 490 ft / 150 m

Height of the Rhine Falls - 80 ft / 25 m

Volume of flow
The average flow of water is 26’450 cubic ft/sec. In 1965 the maximum flow of water was 44’000 cubic ft/sec and in 1921 the minimum flow of water was 3350 cubic ft/sec.

Address: Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall 8447 Dachsen (ZH)

Directions: The routes to the Rhine Falls are clearly indicated (main route is A 4). Route Schaffhausen - Zürich, cross Rhine, exit ‘Schloss Laufen’

From Zurich by car.
