BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
DECEMBER - FEBRUARY
- March to May: Spring in Zurich tends to be quite cool and temperatures hover around 12-13°C. Since this is the time when tourists barely start trickling in, the city won’t be as crowded as the summer months, and you might get some good deals on flights and hotels.
- June to August: The summer months are the best time to visit Zurich, thanks to the pleasant weather (temperature averages around 21°C). Enjoy the outdoors during sunny days and party away the cool breezy evenings. Being the peak tourist season, Zurich is a tad expensive during this time.
- September to November: Autumn in Zurich is the shoulder season for travel. It is not as cold as winter but still quite chilly at 4-10°C. The benefits of course, are the slightly lower hotel rates and less tourists.
- December to February: The winter months are off season in Zurich, but skiers and winter sports enthusiasts flock to Switzerland, making Zurich a popular stopover. The city comes alive during Christmas season, and you can enjoy shopping and festivities even at freezing temperatures (as low as -6°C).
