Zurich, Switzerland

Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Step off the beaten path and head to Old Town and Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich). You'll explore and learn at Landesmuseum and Uhrenmuseum Beyer Zürich. When in Zurich, make a side trip to see Altstadt Luzern in Lucerne, approximately Lucerne away. It doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake Zurich and get a taste of the local shopping with Bahnhofstrasse.

Plan my trip to Zurich with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Tampa, USA to Zurich is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is 6 hours.
