During the coldest months temperatures range from 28 degrees F to 45 degrees F (-2 degrees C to 7 degrees C). For the best views of the city and the lake, follow locals to their favorite weekend aerie, the 871-meter Uetliberg. Southwest of Zürich, the Uetliberg is the most northerly summit in the Albis ridge, easy to reach by the Uetlibergbahn, a mountain railroad that runs year-round from Selnau station to the upper station. From here it is a 10-minute walk to the summit. The favorite way for tourists to enjoy the lake is on one of the many cruises that reveal beautiful views to the Glarus Alps. Look for the steamer landing at Bürkliplatz, at the point where the Limmat flows from the lake.
One of Europe’s top art museums, the Kunsthaus is run by the Zürich Society of Arts and traces its history back to a society of artists founded in 1787. While it has large collections of works by several artists – more paintings by Charles Munch than any other museum outside of Oslo and Europe’s most important collection of Monet’s works outside of Paris – the emphasis has always been on showing the highest quality works by an artist over the largest quantity. Zürich’s “Main Street” is the busy pedestrianized Bahnhofstrasse, stretching from the main train station (bahnhof) to the Bürkliplatz at the head of the lake. The 1,200-meter street is one of the most attractive shopping streets in Europe, enlivened by fountains, public art, trees, and distinguished buildings. A visit to Jungfraujoch rounds out the entire Bernese Oberland experience. You get to play in the snow, see the Aletsch Glacier, and get to stand on one of the highest, most easily accessible places in Europe. If all of this sounds great to you, then a visit to Jungfraujoch is definitely worth it. The Jungfraujoch boasts one of the most famous European peaks and the highest railway station on the continent (hence the phrase ‘Jungfrau’, meaning ‘Top of Europe’). The track leads through the mountains of Eiger and Mönch, up to incomparable panoramas of the surrounding peaks and the Aletsch Glacier.
