Re: Parents coming - need idea for day trip

You can always take the Schilthornbahn up to Piz Gloria. The rotating restaurant gives fantastic views. The cable car ride is also pretty cool. Stop in Murren for that quaint Swiss town on the way down or up. Easy walking and spectacular location.

Re: Parents coming - need idea for day trip

Rapperswil is a great day trip. There is a pretty, flat 3 mile (approx) walk if you get off at Pfaffikon. It takes you along the lake and onto the wooden bridge that leads into Rapperswil. The castle, deer park and views from uptop are unbeatable - both of The Alps (on a clear day) and of Lake Zurich. You have the option of taking the boat back into Zurich if you have the time (2+ hours). The ZVV ticket works for the boat as well as the train.
