Overview
Days 1 Bucolic nature at your feet

Discover the Zurich forest and enjoy traditional Swiss specialties sitting open air and enjoying the city views.

We meet in the most beautiful and traditional square of Zurich, Bellevue, in front of the lake and the opera. Our licensed city guide will tell us about the main monuments and buildings in the area of Bellevue, explaining also the history behind.

After some learnings and beautiful pictures you are ready to enjoy the wonderful nature around Zurich. You ride on a Swiss tram up to the norht of Zurich, entering the upper part of the city. It is time for an easy and totally enjoyable walk with views in the nearby mountain called "Zürichberg". 

After breathing fresh air and exercising your body, you get to a traditional Swiss hut where you can choose from the many Swiss specialties they have in their menu. Your body and your soul will thank you for this experience!

Days 2 Vibrant lunch between bears and beers

Enjoying a relaxed brunch next to the famous docile bears of Bern may help you feel your inner balance better. Let your foodie spirit be warmed by a ray of sunlight and have a great chat and a great view when eating outdoors. The atmosphere is all there for you, are you ready?

You ride in the first class of a Swiss train for an hour and reach the capital of Switzerland. A walk around the old city waiting for the cuckoo clocks make you feel like seeing more. Enjoy the fresh air walking to an abandoned train station that has become a restaurant and a brewery. From the terrace you can see the bears also enjoying nature. Just let yourself go with the vibrant feeling of the place and enjoy your lunch!

Days 3 The call of the green

When mother nature is calling, the only thing you can do is answer and treat her well.

In the first vegetarian restaurant in Switzerland, you will feel this connection and be treated like the king and queen that you are. Enjoy a vegetarian brunch in the middle of the city with a great variety of Swiss quality products, the best atmosphere in town and the healthier smoothies ever!.

Afterwards, we will walk through the city center, discovering beautiful and hidden spots, until we reach the tower of the observatory where we will enjoy a coffee or a drink with 180 degrees panoramic views of Zurich.

2. RECOMMENDED HOTELS CLOSE TO CULINARY EXPERIENCES

Switzerland is a country with very good quality hotels regardless of their category. It is also very well connected by tram, which practically opens up the range of possibilities of stay for this programme.

Our recommendation is to book a hotel in the districts 8001-8008, which is the central area and will allow you to go everywhere by tram. If you stay downtown, district 8001, you can walk everywhere. Any hotel in this area is perfect for walking or with few tram stops to the experiences we propose, to make cultural visits, to go shopping or to find good places to eat.

Recommended five star hotels: Hotel Bar au Lac or Widder Hotel. Both are very central, very well appreciated, with lots of life around, restaurants and shops.

Recommended four-star hotels: Hotel Marktgasse or Hotel Schweizerhof, both of which are very central, intimate and highly valued by travellers.


3. TRAVEL SECURITY

Switzerland is a very safe country; Zurich's choice as the world's highest quality city has repeatedly made it one of the first in its security assessment. Its can circulate through its streets without fear at any time of the day, there is a very low rate of robberies (practically nonexistent) and it is very safe for single travelers.

 

4. PREPARING FOR YOUR TRIP

  • This program includes an outing to a Swiss village, remember to wear appropriate footwear to be comfortable. Also a small backpack to store the water that we will provide you.
  • Going out in the field involves a slight drop in temperature, remember to wear a sweater or jacket.

5. IN SWITZERLAND

  • Hospitality is the hallmark of the Swiss, who will help you out on the street if you need directions.
  • The Swiss speak an average of 3 languages, don't be surprised if you read them in your own language because they are travellers, and besides French, German, English, many speak Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and even Russian.
