Known as the country’s biggest city and the canton capital of the same name, Zurich proves that it is not entirely impossible to be able to spend less when visiting its territory.

A Serene Scene of Zuring in the Evening

 

With the snow-capped Swiss Alps as a stunning background and a lake and a river flowing through the city, Zurich remains to be an enchanting place as it elegantly turned into an impressive urbanized area.

Unfortunately, along with modernization and thriving tourism industry come the consequences of steep prices and impossibly pricey costs for any traveler’s basic necessities.

No need to fret though as there are effective money-saving tips on how you could spend less in Zurich. Read on to learn how.

1. Cycling around Town

Of course you don’t need to bring your own bike just to enjoy free transportation around Zurich. The good news is you can borrow bikes, skateboards and the like for free between May and October from 7AM to 9:20 PM everyday in various places in the city and all year round if you borrow one from the central train station! This is indeed a great alternative to taxis, which are extremely costly – with its meter typically starting at about $6.

2. Take Advantage of the Zurich Card

If bicycles don’t suit you at all, then purchase a 10-franc Zurich card, which is valid for a day, or pay 40 francs for a 3-day free admission to almost all world-renowned museums, free rides on boats, trams, funiculars, trains and buses as well as reasonable discounts at various shops!

Overall, you can save huge amounts of cash in a city deemed expensive by many organizations – you just have to follow the simple tips mentioned above!
 

So start planning a cheap vacation in Zurich now!
