Zurich City Highlights with Felsenegg Cable Car Ride

Lake Zurich

Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach in central Zurich and embark on a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Receive a fascinating introduction to the Zurich's rich historical heritage from your guide and direct your attention to legendary landmarks like the Swiss National Museum and the Zurich Opera House. Appreciate the glittering surface of Lake Zurich during a brief interlude, and then cruise past monuments like the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and Zurich’s art museum. 
Disembark for a leisurely stroll around Zurich’s charming Old Town (Altstadt), and admire quaint houses and grand political centers. Capture photographs of the world’s largest clock face on St Peter’s Church and gaze at the prismatic stained glass windows that decorate Fraumünster Church. 

Re-board your coach for the short and scenic journey to Meilen, where a sightseeing ferry awaits. Enjoy a tranquil crossing of the lake, and then board a cable car on arrival in Adliswil; ascend to a dizzying height of 2,630 feet (800 meters) and absorb sweeping vistas of the snow-capped spires that surround.

When your tour comes to a conclusion, return to your original Zurich departure point in a comfortable coach.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This tour exposed us to much of Zurich and the surrounding area. Guide was excellent and having lived in Switzerland in the late 70's it was nice to see that much remained the same. Would recommend this as introduction to orient oneself for later exploration.
