Your Switzerland Vacation Itinerary

  • Day 1: Zurich Airport is Switzerland’s busiest international airport and is the perfect place to start your trip. Once you’ve settled into your hotel, stroll down the cobblestone streets of Zurich’s Old Town to see some of the city’s significant religious landmarks, like Fraumünster Church and the Grossmünster.

  • Day 2: Less than an hour’s drive from Zurich is the picturesque city of Lucerne. Rent a set of wheels and cruise south to explore notable sights like Chapel Bridge, the Lion of Lucerne and beautiful Lake Lucerne.

  • Day 3: Switzerland’s capital, Bern, is as pretty as a postcard and takes less than 90 minutes in the car from Lucerne. Visit the sprawling Bern Bear Park and catch a glimpse of real bears playing on the grassy hill slopes.

Switzerland Information

  • On the first of August each year at 8 p.m., church bells ring throughout Switzerland to celebrate Swiss National Day. Join families and communities in their festivities as they light bonfires and set off spectacular fireworks.

  • Whether you’re into sightseeing, skiing or admiring breathtaking scenery, there are Switzerland tours to try starting at .  

  • Quirky old fountains, long shopping arcades, a sparkling river — what’s not to love about Switzerland’s capital? If you plan to spend a bit of time here, check out our Bern Vacation Packages.

Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in Switzerland?

A: Unless you're really into cars, public transportation is probably the most convenient way of commuting around Canton of Zurich or Basel. With no pricey parking fees (or trips to the gas station) to bother about, you'll be able to relax and check out the city's attractions with ease. If you'd rather hightail it straight out of town and cruise around the region of Switzerland or elsewhere, renting your own set of wheels is a fantastic option. Browse our handy guide to Cheap Car Hire in Switzerland, book a set of wheels and hit the road in comfort and style.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a vacation to Switzerland?

A: Most overseas travelers to Switzerland fly into one of these popular international airports:

  • Zurich (ZRH): 8,776 international flights per month.
  • Geneva (GVA-Cointrin Intl.): 5,458 international flights per month.
  • Bern (BRN-Belp): 2 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a vacation to Switzerland?

A: Switzerland has a wide range of options for all types of budgets. If you're in need of some rest and relaxation, you’ll find no shortage of hotels. Apartments, bed & breakfasts and hostels are other popular places to stay.

Q: What does a Switzerland vacation booking with Expedia include?

A: You can choose to plan out every detail of your upcoming vacation or let Expedia help you out with an awesome Switzerland vacation package. Flights, hotels and cars — we've got them covered. All you have to do is work out the kind of activities you'd like to try out.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my vacation to Switzerland?

A: Save money and hassle by choosing to bundle your bookings with us. From Hotels to Rental Cars, Expedia will help you pull together an amazing Switzerland getaway. The more you book, the more you stand to save. You'll also have less to do when you hit the ground in your destination.

Q: What are the best things to do in Switzerland?

A: A trip to Canton of Zurich isn't complete until you've been to Bahnhofstrasse, Zoo Zurich and Swiss National Museum. Be sure you get a photo of yourself at each of these iconic attractions to prove it to your friends back home.

And in Basel, a visit to Messeturm Basel, Basel Zoo and Basler Muenster should definitely be on the cards.

A colorful place to wrap up your vacation in Switzerland is Bern. The biggest challenge you'll have here is deciding whether to see Bundeshaus (Swiss Parliament), Clock Tower (Zeitglockenturm) or Stade de Suisse Wankdorf first.
