The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Altstadt Luzern, Rigi and Arboretum. Get out of town with these interesting Zurich side-trips: Bundesplatz (in Bern) and Lucerne (Chapel Bridge & Lake Lucerne). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Uetliberg Mountain, take an in-depth tour of Landesmuseum, and pause for some photo ops at Hans Waldmann Statue.

Plan a trip to Zurich easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Zurich is an approximately 18-hour flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Zurich due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in September, things will get cooler in Zurich: highs are around 22°C and lows about 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 13th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Lucerne.
