The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Explore Zurich's surroundings by going to Lucerne (Lake Lucerne, Lion Monument, & more). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, don't miss a visit to Bahnhofstrasse, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fraumünster Church, and wander the streets of Old Town.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Zurich journey builder app .

Accra, Ghana to Zurich is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Accra to Zurich due to the time zone difference. In October, Zurich is colder than Accra - with highs of 17°C and lows of 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Grindelwald.
