Zurich

Zurich ©
The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Lake Zurich and Verkehrshaus der Schweiz. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Zurich: Mt Pilatus (in Kriens), Natur- und Tierpark Goldau (in Goldau) and Lucerne (Hofkirche, Markuskirche, &more). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Old Town, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fraumünster Church, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Zoo Zurich, and shop like a local with Bahnhofstrasse.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Zurich trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Chennai, India to Zurich is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -4.5 hour difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Chennai in April, with highs in Zurich at °C and lows at °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Interlaken.

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.
Bring the kids along to Tierpark Dahlholzli and UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern. Take a break from Interlaken with a short trip to Barenpark in Bern, about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Jungfraujoch, explore the striking landscape at Aletsch Glacier, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and admire the sheer force of Trümmelbachfälle.
