DAY 2

10:00 Switzerland’s largest city has more than 50 museums, but The Kuntshaus Zurich (Museum of Fine Arts) is one of the biggest and best. It’s renowned for its rich 19th- and 20th-century art collection, including work by Alberto Giacometti, Edvard Munch and Marc Chagall, as well as Picasso, Monet, Rothko, Twombly, Beuys and Bacon.

12:00  Grab an early lunch at the city’s most famous sausage stand Sternen Grill, which offers more than 20 options, including vegetarian.

13:00  Take a short train ride to Zurich’s local mountain Uetliberg and walk or tram up to the top for spectacular panoramic views of the city, Lake Zurich and the snow-capped Alps in the distance. Then, spot native animals such as deer, squirrels, hares, foxes, woodpeckers and owls in the nearby Sihlwald forest.

17:30  Sip a drink at Cabaret Voltaire, birthplace of the Dada art movement and hang-out spot for avant-garde writers and artists of the day. This vibrant culture centre hosts exhibitions, events and a bar.

20:00 With the weekend almost over, don’t go home without trying a Swiss fondue. For a mouth-watering melting pot of cheese with bread and potatoes to dip in (plus wine to wash it down), go to the cosy restaurant Raclette Stube.

Flights from London to Zurich start at £150 return with Swiss Airlines. Direct flights take 1 hour, 40 minutes.
