Your advice for a taste of Zurich in August

Jump to last reply

I would greatly appreciate your advice for a somewhat last minute trip to Zurich this August. I'm scrambling to learn as much as I can about this city and what to do with 1 day and a half day during late afternoon - early evening (other half will consist of a walking tour of the historical section of Zürich). Between those days, I've got a commitment I must tend to, that is distant from the city centre. Lodging is nearby the Zürichberg and don't mind taking the tram.

I found a few helpful posts below, but need some help narrowing things down and finding out more specifics.

Questions that come to mind...
1) What is the weather like during late August?
2) Which major museum is a must see? My taste - I fell in love with Musée d'Orsay during a rainy day.
3) What are the top places with great finds for chocolate and food to bring home, that I won't find in the US? Is there anything I'm restricted from bringing back to the US?
4) What are your top recommendations for reasonably priced meals and a yummy chocolate drink? It doesn't have to be glamorous, just fabulous.
5) How easy is it to get around via tram to see key places, shop and dine? Should I expect 1 major route or multiple connections? And how frequent and late does the tram run? I believe I have quite a ride between the city centre and the Zürichberg area.

Danke!
