15 Hour Layover in Zurich, Switzerland - October 27th

Jump to last reply

Hey readers of the forums,

I am traveling to Barcelona, Spain for a 7 night Mediterranean Cruise through France and Italy, October 17th-27th.

On my way back, I have a 15 hour layover in Zurich, Switzerland. I will arrive at 9:40 PM and leave again at 1:15 PM.

Zurich Airport appears to be 20 miles away or so from the center of town. Realistically, is there anything I can do? Is there nightlife to be had at a late hour? Assuming it's probably around 11:00 PM local time, once I deplane, go through Immigration, and collect my baggage?

Additionally, what about places to stay? I have not researched the airport that much, aside from the fact I know I can rent a "dayroom" for about 45 euros overnight, and then pay 15 euros for a shower.

Any recommendations would be fantastic. I am planning on getting to the airport around 10:00 am - to allow myself plenty of time to go through security, get my ticket, etc. I am not too worried about sleep - I want to be able to experience (some of) Zurich while I am "in town".

Thank you in advance!

Eric
