Weather in Zurich

Zurich enjoys a relatively typical continental climate, with summers (June to August) seeing average temperatures knock the mercury higher than 21˚C (70˚F). Visiting during this period also gives tourists the chance to swim in Lake Zurich or the Limmat. Temperatures drop significantly over winter, but thanks to the city’s arts scene and slew of major visitor attractions, Zurich can be enjoyed year-round. The Christmas markets are always a big draw.

  • 51 to 70 is moderate to low
  • 71 to 80 is moderate
  • 81 to 90 is moderate to high
