Anyone have a good word to say about Zurich?

Jump to last reply

So, I'm planning the second half of my upcoming European trip, and I'm looking at going from the Italian lakes to the Black Forest across Switzerland. I would take the train from Como to Konstanz, with a change in Zurich. It occurred to me that it would be quite a long day, given I would actually start in Varenna, and maybe I should overnight in Zurich.

But I don't care for one-nighters, and doing a little reading on Zurich it seems a bit more interesting than people here have suggested, plus I could use it as a base for Schaffhausen and the Rhine Falls, and/or St. Gallen (not sure the Rhine Falls are worth a detour). There are at least three museums that look worthwhile: the Swiss National Museum, the Design Museum, and the Museum Bellerive. Plus an old town area, assorted churches, a riverside promenade and the lake. Maybe I need three nights. Are the guidebooks leading me astray, or is it worth a stop?

(I also looked at Lucerne, but I'd have to change trains both ways. I'd sooner just go on to Konstanz.)
