Zurich climate

Its continental climate and Atlantic Ocean location helps bring a bold set of diverse weather patterns within the boundaries of Zurich. Winters can be bitterly cold, with January temperatures bottoming out at just a few degrees above freezing. Summer, on the other hand, is a popular time for tourists to book flights to Zurich. Warm, sunny days reaching temperatures in the mid 20s (Celsius)welcome lots of outdoor fun – until of course, the rain starts. Unfortunately, (another one of Zurich’s symbiotic relationships) with the high temperatures comes frequent rainfall, so if you’re booking flights to Zurich in the summer, definitely pack an umbrella.

Getting around Zurich

When your flight to Zurich arrives, you won’t have any trouble getting around the city. Buses cover the city limits, and trams and S-Bahn trains can take you around the city and to the suburbs. The service runs from 5:30am to midnight and you can buy tickets at the stations. Renting a car can be a good idea for day trips, but parking can be tricky. Meters along the road often have short time limits, so don’t roam too far, and remember to keep some change in your pocket.
