Zurich ©
The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Zoo Zurich and Verkehrshaus der Schweiz. Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Mt Pilatus (in Kriens), Titlis (in Engelberg) and Lucerne (Hofkirche, Lake Lucerne, &more). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Grossmunster, get your game on at Fusion Arena Virtual Reality Center, and take in the awesome beauty at Uetliberg Mountain.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Zurich trip planner.

Boston, USA to Zurich is an approximately 10- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Boston to Zurich due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 58°F in April, and nighttime lows around 41°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to take a train to Bern.

Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Einstein House (Einsteinhaus) and then explore the activities along Aare River.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Bern trip maker website.
