Best things to do and see in Switzerland

The flight time from the US to Switzerland varies, depending on your arrival and departure airports. Some of the most popular airports with flights to Switzerland are Los Angeles International (LAX) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). You can get flights to Switzerland’s major cities such as Zurich, Geneva, and Zermatt from these airports. If you’re flying from Los Angeles (LAX) to Zurich, the flight time will be around 11h on a direct flight offered by SWISS Airways. You can also opt for cheap single-layover flights with layovers in Newark or London, and these take longer depending on the airline you fly with. Nonstop flights from New York (JFK) will take just under 8h to get to ZRH, while a flight from JFK to Geneva International Airport (GVA) will take about 12 and a halfh if you fly with the quickest airline, Tap Air Portugal. If you’re on the west coast, the fastest Switzerland flights from LAX to GVA take about 13 and a halfh.

You can get nonstop flights to Switzerland from the US, mainly from major international airports in the US. SWISS Airlines offers most nonstop flights, whether you’re flying from LAX, JFK, or Newark International Airport (EWR). If you are departing from the west coast, consider flying from LAX since the nonstop flights take around 11h to get to Zurich. Nonstop Switzerland flights from JFK to ZRH take around 8h, while those from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) take about 11h.

The best way to get around Switzerland’s most popular cities such as Zurich, Geneva, Basel, and Zermatt is air travel. Getting to Zurich from Geneva is quite fast and convenient since the flight takes about anh and is affordable. Traveling by bus is another good option as the Zurich bus terminal is the largest and most connected terminal in Switzerland. From Zurich, you can take Zelic Reisen, Drusburg Reisen, Optop Travel, or Walliser buses, to most Switzerland cities, including Geneva, Basel, and Zermatt. Shuttle services are also provided by hotels close to the airports. These hotel shuttles also extend their services to other destinations, and you can conveniently get to different parts of the city. Car rental companies such as Alamo, Alvis, and Europcar are also available in Switzerland if you wish to get your own set of wheels. Renting a car is the most convenient option and allows you to get around at your own pace. Lastly, taxis are also readily available. They are great for within-city travel but will be expensive for those looking to travel long distances.

If you are planning to visit Switzerland, you will need a valid passport (which must be valid for a minimum of six month), but a visa is not required for stays less than 90 days. Moreover, your passport must have at least two blank pages for the entry and exit of stamps upon arrival and departure from Switzerland. If you are staying for more than 90 days, apply for a visa at the Swiss embassy, high commission, or consulate.
