Get Out into the Nature!
Those who visit Zurich and, besides the urban metropolis, would like to enjoy the fabulous scenery, do not have to travel far to do so. Wonderful excursions take you into the mountains and forests, to and on the waterways, or to lofty heights.
You can breathe in the mountain air during a hike on the Üetliberg, on an excursion to the Bernese Oberland or on a trip over the Swiss mountain passes. Anyone who is not afraid of heights can enjoy a hot-air balloon ride in the Zurich region, with spectacular panoramic views thrown in for free. Those who prefer to stay on terra firma can go on an excursion to the Black Forest, admire the magnificent Rhine Falls, or explore the region’s waterways in a canoe.
Guided excursions and outdoor activities in the Zurich region can be booked through the Tourist Service at Zurich Main Train Station.
