Zurich ©
The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Zoo Zurich and Parapark Zurich. Explore Zurich's surroundings by going to Lucerne (Mt Pilatus, Hofkirche, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich, get to know the fascinating history of Old Town, and pause for some serene contemplation at Grossmunster.

For more things to do, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Zurich trip itinerary planning website .

Salt Lake City, USA to Zurich is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Salt Lake City to Zurich due to the time zone difference.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) so you can drive to Interlaken.

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.

Here are some ideas for day two: get to know the resident critters at Tierpark Dahlholzli, then get your game on at Seilpark Interlaken, then stroll around Hohematte Park, and finally fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
