For a perfect mix of warm, sunny days, and very little rainfall, visit Zurich during the months of either May or October, when autumn and spring are at their heights, and you’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds.
During the month of May, cold temperatures are long gone, and in October, the blistering days of 25 degrees and wet days of downpours are a thing of the past. Both seasons are beautiful happy mediums and serve as the best time to visit Zurich.
The Zurich Street Parade takes place in August. Many daring souls, regardless of age, fly to Zurich to experience this all day, all night extravaganza of dancing, music, and sharing. Every August, Swiss party-goers hit the streets for this outdoor elaborate showing of fun and spirit. Symbolising love, peace, freedom, generosity and tolerance, residents (and tourists) gather to celebrate the joy of life together. What started in 1992 as a city-wide festival has now lured over a half million international visitors who book flights to Zurich and see the intensity of this brightly lit bash. Don’t tire yourself out too quickly though – the parade has floats running until the wee hours of the morning, and when it does officially shut down, the party simply moves to private homes and hotel rooms.

Zurich is a place that happily blends a bumping nightlife with a busy stock exchange. Its hand-in-hand relationship is just one of the many combinations of surprising delights from this Swiss city.
When you travel, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that your first taste is never your last. Existing as one of the biggest stock exchange cities in the world, Zurich offers an economy that makes other cities green with envy. On top of its financial success, it also happens to have a trendy and upcoming flair for fashion, arts, and culture. Its river and lakeside location allows it to pair natural beauty with its urban specialty, and you’ll find that many more of these symbiotic relationships are what makes the city so uniquely special.
New bars, restaurants, and clubs spring up all over the city each month, and its residents are passionate about immersing themselves in the newness of incoming culture.

Winters can be bitterly cold, with January temperatures bottoming out at just a few degrees above zero. Summer, on the other hand, is a popular time for tourists.

Unfortunately, with the high temperatures comes frequent rainfall, so if you’re booking flights to Zurich in the summer, definitely pack an umbrella.
