Zurich City Highlights with Felsenegg Cable Car Ride
US$59.26
Overview
Experience Zurich’s highlights and gorgeous lake-and-mountain scenery in just half a day on this guided tour. You’ll have a hassle-free trip combining coach bus sightseeing, an Old Town walking tour, Lake Zurich ferry crossing, and a cable car ride to Felsenegg for bird’s-eye city and Alpine views. With guide commentary along the way, it’s an ideal option for those short on time who want to see as much as possible.
What to Expect
Meet in central Zurich and settle into a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for a panoramic tour.

Listen to tales of the city’s history from a guide as you pass sights such as Zurich Opera House and the Swiss National Museum, and enjoy some time to gaze out over Lake Zurich.

Hop out for a stroll around Old Town (Altstadt), admiring its quaint houses and squares. Stop to admire the exteriors of St. Peter’s Church, graced by the world’s biggest clockface, and Fraumunster Church, famous for its Marc Chagall stained-glass windows.

Next, travel by coach to nearby Meilen to catch a ferry across Lake Zurich. Soak in the scenery during the crossing before riding a cable car up Felsenegg for panoramic views over the city, Alps, and lake.

Afterward, return by coach to the original departure point where your tour concludes.
