Going to Zurich and not able to spend more than 8 hours is the biggest regret of life but using those 8 hours to the fullest and feeling the Swiss air was an amazing experience!
Discovering Zurich between connecting flights
We had time from 7 AM to 5 PM to discover the city. Local hourly tours helped us a lot to get a visit to best places of Zurich!

After a quick breakfast we reached Sihlquai bus parking where you get Circle Tour which includes City Tour and Lake Tour. This is 3.5 hours tour that covers most of the main points of the city starts at 09.45 am, 12 pm and 2 pm.

City Tour by Bus
9.45 AM to 11.45 AM. 

This city is situated around the Zurich lake, so you could see the different and beautiful views of the lake from different sides of the city.

This tour first covers the city’s business and financial district. Then you visit the world-famous Bahnhofstrasse shopping mile and the main museums. To discover these places in details you have to stay there in Zurich. 

Then we visited the university quarter, I really liked the description the audio guide gave about their university. As they identify qualities in students and decide if they should choose academics or skilled based education or sports as their career. 

You could listen to a comprehensive commentary about Zurich’s history, culture and attractions via a modern audio guide system.


CruiseTour on Lake Zurich
One and half hour tour to get unforgettable experience. 

After finishing the city tour by bus get ready for 1½-hour cruise on Lake Zurich, departing from the landing stage at Bürkliplatz. Spectacular views of the city and snow covered Alps will give you mesmarizing experience, fresh lake air and beautiful birds flying around will make you think how nature bless us and you fall in love with beauty of the nature!  

The cruise finishes at Bürkliplatz, which is 15-20 minutes from main station where you get train to reach to Airport.
