British Airways flights to Zurich touch down at Zurich Airport, seven and a half miles north of Zurich city centre. After landing at Zurich Airport, take a Glattalbahn tram (serving the East of the city), train or bus to the heart of Zurich's action. Loosen up after your Zurich flight with an energetic stroll along Lake Zurich, stopping to take photos of the snowy Swiss Alps in the background. You'll soon find out what makes Zurich tick - from world-class art in the medieval Altstadt (Old Town) to urban bars in trendy Zurich-West.
After your flight to Zurich Airport, the easiest way to reach central Zurich is to hop on the train for the comfortable ten-minute ride to Zurich Hauptbahnhof main train station. Or catch a bus from the terminal behind the multi-storey car parks. You can pick up a metered taxi from outside Flight Arrivals when your flights land in Zurich. The journey into central Zurich takes roughly 20 minutes, but allow extra time to catch return flights from Zurich Airport, especially during rush hour.
Stretch your legs after your Zurich flight with a stroll along petrol-blue Lake Zurich, ducking into the little workshops and boutiques lining Zurich Altstadt's maze of cobbled alleyways. Take in the spires of Romanesque Grossmnster church and the view across Zurich's red rooftops and Limmat River from the lime tree-fringed Lindenhof terrace. Contemplate Monet originals in Kunsthaus Zurich or contemporary masters at Kunsthalle Zurich, housed in an old brewery. Munch on Swiss truffles or cream-filled local macaroons on your flight home from Zurich.
