Weather in Zurich

Best time to visit

Zurich enjoys a relatively typical continental climate, with summers (June to August) seeing average temperatures of more than 21˚C (70˚F). Another attraction of visiting during this period is the chance to swim in Lake Zurich or the Limmat. Temperatures drop significantly over winter, but the city’s arts scene and visitor attractions make it a year-round destination. The Christmas markets are always a big draw.
