Zürich can be counted as one of the world's pre-eminent global cities.

Average summer temperatures in Zürich are very pleasant for sightseeing and even swimming in the city’s rivers and lakes.

Bring something warm for summer evenings when temperatures can drop to around 15º. Zürich summer weather brings a festive spirit and attracts the largest number of visitors to the city, but this is also the wettest time of year. Zürich weather can be rainy at any time of year. Rainfall actually peaks in the summer, though often in short heavy storms that reduce humidity and will not unduly affect your holiday.
