Day Layover in Zurich

Jump to last reply

We (family of 4 with young teens) are flying to Europe in mid June with award miles and a flight opened up the day before our original departure date. This was more appealing as it would give us an extra day to help with jet lag before we begin our "real" trip. But our routing changed and we now have a day layover in Zurich. So we arrive after an overnight at 8:30am and fly out again at 6p that night. The kids think it is cool they will get a small taste of Switzerland.

I figured we would stash our carry-on luggage at the airport, take the train to the city and will have about 6 hours to wander around like zombies trying to stay awake. It is a Sunday so I think shops will be closed.

Any suggestions of where to wander, sites to check out, good places to sit our bums to eat, drink, relax and hopefully not fall asleep in our soup? Is it worth thinking about taking the hour train to Lucerne instead for a more picturesque Swiss experience?

Thank you!
