Guided Day Trips from Zurich to the Alps

Discover the Swiss mountains on a day trip from Zurich.

Anyone who visits Switzerland should not miss an excursion into the Swiss mountains. A day trip to the Jungfraujoch or Mount Titlis – surrounded by perpetual snow and ice at over 3,000 meters (9,840 ft) above sea level – is a truly breathtaking experience. On Mount Rigi, Mount Stanserhorn, and Mount Pilatus, too, on clear days visitors can delight in the magnificent panoramic views extending far beyond Central Switzerland and the Bernese Oberland.

The guided day trips depart from Zurich. From here, the tour bus heads towards the mountains, after which a mountain cableway or a cogwheel train will transport you in comfort up to the Alpine peaks. The full-day excursions for both individuals and private groups can be booked at the Tourist Information or online.
