What to do on a rainy day in Zurich

We’re at the fag end of summer and probably would be seeing more rain than sun. But as much as we would like to laze by the lakeside and hike up a mountain, a rainy day can ruin your mood and plans. But the good news is that it doesn’t mean you should be moping and at a loss of things to do. Zurich has surprises and exciting activities in store even for the gloomiest days. We drew up a list of our favourites.

FIFA Football Museum

Right in the city and a treat for football fans, with memorabilia, trivia and souvenirs. The museum houses artifacts and exhibits that appeal to Messi- or Rooney worshippers as well as families looking for a rainy-day outing.

Swiss National Museum

This is a gem! To know about the country you live in and find interesting facets about it is so worth your time. The museum regularly hosts exciting exhibits in addition to the permanent Swiss historic ones. The grounds of the museum with a sprawling park by the side of the Limmat river are scenic and free to explore.

Kino

What better way to spend a wet rainy day that watching a movie snuggly in a theatre? Zurich’s movie theatres are small, cozy and give you that personal feel. There’s also a choice of Arthouse Theatres and Commercial Theatres to choose from. Just check for the language of films you wish to watch.
