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 historical introduction to Zurich from your guide and direct your attention to landmarks such as the Swiss National Museum and the Zurich Opera House. Look out at 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. 

Reboard 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.

Great, couldn't be more happy with the tour, a great afternoon, friendly and helpful guide, and great routes. We really enjoyed the walking portion, but it did occur to me that you might let people know beforehand they will be walking. One gentleman remained behind on City walk given that his 'feet and back were sore.' I wonder if he still would have come, had he known that he would miss out. Not at all a big deal, just wanted to inform you. We couldn't have been happier with the tour.
