Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Zoological Museum and Wildegg Castle. Museum-lovers will appreciate Uhrenmuseum Beyer Zürich and Oskar-Reinhart Foundation Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Park Seleger Moor (in Rifferswil) and Sammlung Oskar Reinhart (in Winterthur). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Niederdorf, get to know the fascinating history of Old Town, explore the activities along Lake Zurich, and visit Schanzengraben Canal.

To find photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Zurich itinerary site.

Singapore, Singapore to Zurich is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Singapore Standard Time to Central European Standard Time, which is usually a -7 hour difference.
