Kid-friendly guide to Zurich



Description:

This guide is designed to find a compromise between adult and kid activities to make an all-round fun trip for the whole family. All the listed restaurants do very well for kids, and some of the kid-centered activities will also be great fun for adults as well, especially the visit to Technorama and the trip to Alpamare.

Day 1 - Zurich


With hot chocolate at Cafe Sprungli and a trip to toy store Franz Weber on Bahnhofstrasse in the afternoon as incentive to be patient, spend the morning doing a spurt of historical/cultural activities that can be quickly done. Have dinner at outdoor Bauschanzli where there is lots of kid-friendly grill selection. Book a family room at Hotel St. Josef.
