Luxury holidays in Zurich

Northern Switzerland’s vibrant metropolis isn’t just a cornucopia of chocolates and designer watches – although you’ll find luxurious takes on both in abundance. Wander through Old Town Zürich’s cobblestone streets in search of the city’s finest confectioners, browse the Swiss art in the Kunsthaus, and spot the modern, Marc Chagall-designed stained-glass window in 13th-century Fraumünster Cathedral. In the evenings, perambulate the shores of Lake Zürich or head to hip Züri-West for on-trend eateries and stylish nightlife.

When to go

Winters are typically snowy, and daytime temperatures tend to hover around 2°C; things start to warm up a bit by early March, and mild May is a pleasant time to see the city before crowds kick in. If you're planning on shopping, note that everything's closed on Sundays, year round.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Direct flights from across Europe and North America land at Zürich Airport, just 30 minutes by car from the Old Town. Ring up our Smith24 team and they’ll happily sort out flights for you.
  • Trains

    Eurostar and TGV trains regularly pull into Zürich Main Station.
  • Automobiles

    You won’t need a car to smoothly navigate the city, but if you’re arriving on your own set of wheels, paid public parking spaces can be found everywhere but pedestrianised Old Town.
