Zurich’s local mountain known as Uetliberg is a popular destination for excursions. Up here, it is often wonderfully sunny when the fog is holding its own in the city at the mountain’s foot - this is communicated to you via the display boards on the trams, which then report "Uetliberg hell” (literally “Uetliberg bright”). In winter, the toboggan run from the mountain to the valley is a lot of fun.
But Zurich is also an art and culture metropolis with a lively night life. Once a year, the street parade also makes this clear during the day. With a population of just under 400,000, there are also around 60 cinema auditoriums, 40 museums and 14 theatres. And because nothing in Switzerland works without watches, you can also visit the watch museum to admire a collection of precious historical chronographs. Provided your wallets are full, current models of Rolex, Omega & Co. can be found with the necessary change in one of Central Europe's most famous shopping streets, the Bahnhofstraße or the fancy Storchenviertel. Good thing Nightjet tickets are so affordable.
