Zurich, located at the north end of Lake Zurich in Switzerland, is known as the global centre for banking and finance. The city is rich in pre-medieval history as can be found on the picturesque lanes of central Alstadt and both sides of the Limmat River. Zurich is Switzerland’s largest and wealthiest metropolis and has become one of Central Europe’s hippest travel destinations.
June to August is when the weather is the best in Zurich with the average weather being at around 21 degrees Celsius in the day and with a cool breezy evening. However, these months are also the peak travel seasons in Zurich. Thus hotel and flight prices might also be a little higher than usual. September to November is the shoulder season, with lesser tourists, lower hotel prices and with still comfortable weather for sightseeing. You'll also be able to catch the beautiful autumn leaves. If you're looking for a bargain, March to May would be the best time as this is when there are the least tourists and the hotel prices are at its lowest.
