What to expect

Discover why Zürich is frequently awarded the title of city with best quality of life and learn about Switzerland's business and cultural centre while listening to your multilingual guide pointing out the highlights of this unique town. Heading out to the beautiful surrounding area, you will cross Lake Zürich by ferry and ride a cable car to Felsenegg with stunning views of the town, the lake and the snow-capped Alps.

This beautiful excursion combines the interesting city of Zürich with its beautiful nature in the surroundings. Enjoy the drive in a comfortable, air-conditioned private vehicle passing by the castle-like National Museum, the shopping avenue Bahnhofstrasse, Zürich's famous financial district and the renowned Opera House. You will make a photo stop at the picturesque Lake Zürich before cruising the university quarter to see the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Zürich's art museum.

After this, you will reach the charming Old Town for your next picture stop. First you will take an introductiory stroll through the pleasant pedestrian area with view of the patriarchal guild houses, St. Peter church with Europe's largest clock-face, the "Grossmünster" church and the "Fraumünster" church with the stained glass windows by Marc Chagall. Then you will head out of the city, as your journey will continue along the “Gold Coast” to Meilen, where you will board the ferry and cross the pristine waters of Lake of Zürich to Horgen. In Adliswil you will have the ultimate highlight of your city tour: The ride by the only aerial cable car in the Canton of Zürich to the viewpoint on Felsenegg.

This popular recreational area for locals living in and around Zürich offers incredible views overlooking the city, the lake and the snow-capped Alps. Enjoy the fresh air of the beautiful forest before heading back to Zürich.
