The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Take a break from the city and head to Mt Pilatus and Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen. Old Town and Fraumünster Church will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Pilatus Luzern (in Kriens) and Biosphaere Entlebuch (in Lucerne). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Bahnhofstrasse, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich), and examine the collection at Uhrenmuseum Beyer Zürich.

For other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, read Zurich trip planner.

Mumbai, India to Zurich is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from Mumbai to Zurich due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Mumbai in May, with highs in Zurich at °C and lows at °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Mon) so you can drive to Interlaken.

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
Take a break from the city and head to Jungfraujoch and Trümmelbachfälle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Interlaken: Lenkerseeli/Spielplatz (in Lenk im Simmental), UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern (in Bern) and Axalp (in Brienz). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Maennlichen, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier.

To find photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Interlaken trip planner.

You can drive from Zurich to Interlaken in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In May, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
