The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Zurich: Mt Pilatus (in Kriens), Brienz (Lake Brienz & Giessbachfälle) and Lucerne (Lake Lucerne, The Nine Towers, &more). The adventure continues: explore the activities along Lake Zurich, take in the dramatic scenery at Reichenbach Falls, examine the collection at Zurcher Spielzeugmuseum, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Town.

To see reviews, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Zurich road trip planning site.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Zurich is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Riyadh to Zurich. Traveling from Riyadh in August, expect Zurich to be much colder, temps between 28°C and 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) to allow time to travel to Geneva.
