Zurich Adventure – Ideas for Day Excursions in and Around Zurich

Numerous sight of interest are discovered in the small neighboring towns and nature areas surrounding Zurich, for which taking the time to visit them on a day excursion is really worth the time. You get to the castle hill and Rapperswil "Riviera" in less than an hour by boat, train or car – as well as reach the Fotomuseum Winterthur or the famous Schaffhausen Rhine falls in the same amount of time.

A guided Titlis excursion, Baden bathing experience or coffee and Zug's famous cherry cake along with a healthy chat also entice people outdoors. With the ZürichCARD such excursion ideas are half the price and travel with the City Card is piece of cake.
