Nestled in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, Zurich is in a prime location for exploration of some of Switzerland's most beautiful scenery. From city streets to lush countryside vistas, here are a few of the top day trip destinations from Zurich.

Lucerne
With medieval architecture, sun-soaked squares, mountain vistas, and waterside strolls, the peaceful town of Lucerne is the perfect day trip from bustling Zurich, just 30 miles (52 km) away. Take a sightseeing cruise on Lake Lucerne for panoramic views over the Albis Pass mountain range, discover top attractions such as Chapel Bridge and the Lion Monument, and experience Alpine adventure on a cable car trip up mighty Mt. Rigi.

Swiss Alps 
Whether for summer hiking, winter skiing, or all-year-round outdoor adventure, Zurich is a great base from which to explore the spectacular Swiss Alps. Delve deep into the Bernese Oberland or take the cogwheel train to the UNESCO–listed Jungfraujoch. And for those with a head for heights, take the cable car to the top of Mt. Titlis or Mt. Pilatus—where breathtaking Alpine vistas await.

Swiss Countryside 
Away from the soaring spires and cobbled streets, Zurich is surrounded by lakes, forests, lush pastureland, and vine-coated hills—it's an outdoor lover’s haven. Travel through traditional villages where time ticks by slowly, discover the secrets of Appenzeller cheese, admire medieval landmarks in Stein am Rhein, or discover a world of sweeping valleys, alpine lakes, and cascading waterfalls in Heidiland. And if you're a foodie looking to sample the sweet flavors of Switzerland, no trip is complete without a visit to the famous Lindt chocolate factory.
