I might be travelling up to Zürich on Sunday afternoon for a "business transaction" and thought I might make a day of it with my 2 girls, 13 and 11. Question is, I really only know bars and pubs in ZH, so what is there to do on a Sunday afternoon in the big smoke with said rugrats in tow?
I'm pretty sure all kids love going on drug deals with daddy.

Re: What's to do in Zürich on a Sunday?

Take a lake steamer and have lunch or just ice cream... Go swimming at Zurihorn where there's a big slide, build cairns along the lakeside promenade... Check out some of the free University museum collections (archaeology, ethnography, geology, zoological...) Have hot chocolate and one of the amazing cakes at Cafe Schober in the Niederdorf...

Re: What's to do in Zürich on a Sunday?

There's an exhibit I have been meaning to go to in Zurich at Museum Rietberg. It's open on Sundays.

Re: What's to do in Zürich on a Sunday?

If you don't know what to do today and like Opera, there is a HDTV broadcast from the Opera House on Münsterhof. They play "Clari".
The screen is 100m2, admission free. Starts 21.30h. Enjoy.

Opera on Münsterhof

Re: What's to do in Zürich on a Sunday?

Thanks for all the suggestions, but we never made it in the end. My "transaction" never took place, and I had a pretty sore head in the morning anyway. Good job the weather was shite

Re: What's to do in Zürich on a Sunday?

someone mentioned the free ETH museums and I certainly second that option! The girls will find things interesting and not 'stuffy' at all.
Whatever the weather, you will all find it fascinating.

have fun and make some great memories with the girls while they still want to be with you!
