I will be at Manndedorf (~ 20km southeast, north of the lake) for a week for a business trip from 15-19 Jun 09. My wife will be travelling with me as well.
We plan to arrive in Zurich a couple of days earlier (11 jun 09) We would like to do a couple of things together before she is on her own to do some exploring during the day-time while I am at work. Here are the things that we would like to do. Any suggestions are welcome & appreciated greatly. Thank you!
1) Shopping (what time do shops normally close? Are they open on Sundays?)
2) Spending 1-2 nights in a mountain resort nearby (Would prefer to do some hiking or just enjoy the mountain view. Is there any possibility of doing tandem hang-gliding anywhere near Zurich?) We have spent 3 nights in Jungfrau region previously, so we probably would not go there again even though it is really a fantastic place.
3) Visit some quaint villages around Zurich (preferably 1-1.5hrs away by train)
Are there any things to do at night in Zurich? We would probably be staying in Manndedorf from 15-19 Jun, but were planning to travel to Zurich if the nightlife is bustling.
