Serving as the most common point of arrival in Switzerland, Zurich is the best location to kick off a grand and memorable vacation throughout the country. Kid-friendly highlights include admiring the locks on the footbridges throughout the Old Town, playing in the pretty squares and taking a chocolate-making lesson. For a change in scenery, head to Zurich’s more modern areas, where teens will enjoy edgy design and children can play in gardens made from converted shipping containers. Zurich’s kid-friendly accommodation scene is incredibly robust and diverse. Options include modern luxury hotels as well as historic and charming inns that have welcomed guests for centuries.
