Fall in Zurich 2022 Filled with Food & Wine Surprises


New York - September 1, 2022: The autumn months in Zurich offer the perfect time of year to experience the best of the city’s charming streets, nearby hikes, local cuisine, vibrant foliage, art exhibitions, special events and much more. Below are just some of the many experiences to get the most out of a trip to Zurich this fall.
FALL FOLIAGE
Uetliberg
Standing 2,854 feet above sea level is Zurich’s own mountain, Uetliberg, an outdoor paradise close to the city. A 25-minute train ride brings visitors to the top of the mountain for incredible views of Zurich, the lake and the Alps. During the fall, this view becomes vibrant with a wide range of colors from the surrounding forest’s leaves changing colors, popping with greens, yellows, browns, oranges and reds. 
Lindenhof & Schipfe
The Lindenhof in the Old Town of Zurich is one of the best viewpoints in the fall thanks to its trees dotted with incredible yellow leaves. Just below the Lindenhof is an area called Schipfe, where vibrant foliage can be found surrounding the majestic river.
FOOD & WINE
Wine Tastings
Zurich has two wineries located within the city that are ideal spots for tastings during the harvest season: Zweifel, which is a popular chips brand that also produces local wine, with roots dating back to the 14th century; and Landolt, which was founded in 1834 and is one of the most beautiful vineyards in the city. It produces 30 different wines with 10 kinds of grapes from the Zurich wine region. 
Market Bürkliplatz
One of the most popular local markets in Zurich is the Market Bürkliplatz, which takes place every Tuesday and Friday morning. As one of the largest local markets in Zurich, visitors can find a bounty of seasonal vegetables and fruits, flowers, cheese, fish and meat, especially in the fall season. 
MUSEUMS & EXHIBITIONS
WOW City Rally
Since June 2022, the WOW Museum, a museum of optical illusions, has been offering a new activity: the WOW City Rally. Visitors can experience real-life WOW moments on a walk through the city with animated illusions, as well as different challenges and engaging interactions.
