Zurich

— 5 nights

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Visit Old Town and Grossmunster for their historical value. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich) and Landesmuseum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Zurich: Biosphaere Entlebuch (in Lucerne) and Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona (in Glarus). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Bahnhofstrasse, admire the striking features of Fraumünster Church, explore the world behind art at Museum Rietberg, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich.

Plan my Zurich trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Singapore, Singapore to Zurich is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Singapore Standard Time (SGT) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is minus 7 hours. Traveling from Singapore in January, expect Zurich to be cooler, temps between 5°C and -1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to catch the train to Bern.

City of Bears

Do your shopping at UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern and Swiss Chocolate Chalet. Change things up with these side-trips from Bern: Axalp (in Brienz), Grindelwald Museum (in Grindelwald) and Interlaken (Swiss Mountain Market Unique Regional Souvenirs, Mad Cow, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Oeschinen Lake.

For other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Bern day trip planning website.

Immerse yourself in a snow-capped mountain wonderland in Switzerland's serene Alpine setting. See the world-renowned Matterhorn, Switzerland's second-highest mountain at 4,478 m (14,962 ft) tall, or zoom down the mountains on toboggan, ski, or snowboard. In the warmer seasons hike around the rolling green hillsides covered with pine trees and picturesque aqua blue lakes. Luxurious cities dotted with cozy wooden chalets and colorful flowerbeds balance quaintness with first-class cultural offerings. Indulge in the country's opulence of milk chocolate, cheese fondue, and keg-carrying St. Bernard dogs.
