Zurich on a Budget

Zurich does not have to be expensive. Here are some simple tricks and tips on what you can do in Zurich for little or no money.

The first thing smart urban explorers do is buy themselves a Zürich Card: with this city pass, they can benefit from free travel on Zurich’s public transportation, free or reduced admission to many museums, and attractive discounts or surprises in specially selected stores and restaurants.

Sporty visitors can rent a bicycle for next to nothing and explore the city from a completely different perspective. Delighting in wonderful views, relaxing by the lake, swimming in the river, and drinking potable water from over 1,200 fountains – these are also completely free of charge.
