Things to Do in Zurich

One of the most memorable activities in Zurich is certainly a tour of the city's simply stunning museums. Can you believe Zurich is home to more than 50 museums? Over a dozen of them are dedicated exclusively to art. Our pick for the best of the best has to be the Kunsthaus Zurich, which houses a collection of fine art that will take your breath away. It covers all the significant periods of European art, starting from the Middle Ages. The Rietberg Museum is another of our favorites, where you'll find one of the best collections of non-European art in the world. The Swiss National Museum is in a century-old building that will have you thinking you've stepped into a castle -- one with an impressive collection of Swiss cultural exhibits and artifacts.

Once you've seen a few museums, it might be time to shop along the Bahnhofstrasse. This mile-long street features designer boutiques and street cafes, where you can sip a hot chocolate and watch the passersby. And if you like this slower pace, you might add a stroll through Old Town to your list of must-do activities in Zurich. There you'll find art galleries, antique shops. Linger into the evening and the area becomes a center for entertainment.

For the young and the young at heart, one of the top things to do in Zurich is visiting the Zurich Zoo. You'll find a show-stopping ecosystem exhibit where you can see flora and fauna from the Madagascan Masoala Rainforest.

Of course, no trip here is complete without a proper viewing of the Swiss Alps. One of our favorite ways to do that is with a Mount Titlis Day Tour. It's a guided coach tour that goes over Albis Pass and along the shore of the Lake of Four Canons before arriving in Lucerne. Then it's on to Engelberg, where you will take a rotating cable car ride to the summit of Mount Titlis. You won't soon forget the view.

Flying to Zurich with American Airlines and enjoying the trip of a lifetime is easy. The beauty of Zurich, Switzerland, is itself something to behold -- and when you add all that you can see and do here as well, you truly might feel as if you are in a fairy tale.
