      one week

      >What are you interested in?
      Music mostly, I'd love to hear some local musicians playing live. Also art and cheese.

      >Car/public transport?
      Public transport, but I would love to visit some cute little town in the area if they are reachable by train

        It's Switzerland, everything's reachable by train and bus.

        Noice so you got plenty of time.

        >Music mostly, I'd love to hear some local musicians playing live.
        Well if you're into classic we got the Tonhalle and a very good Opera, there's pretty much every day some kind of concert, check out
        https://www.songkick.com/metro-areas/104761-switzerland-zurich/november-2023
        Usual places for music are Kaufleuten, X-tra and Dynamo if you're into alternate/stoner stuff there's Rote Fabrik with Punk/Ska/Hiphop.
        Art: Well go to the Kunsthaus for sure, Löwenbräu-Areal and Kunst Museum Winterthurare something for you. Imo you can skip the Landesmuseum unless you get free admission anyway as it's honestly not that impressive. Also the medical and natural historical museum at the uni zurich is worth a visit (not that large but free)
        Cheese well is obviously anywhere in Switzerland, good cheese stores I can suggest: Chäs-Chäller in the Niederdorf, natürli Käseladen located in the food department inside of Jelmoli, a 20min train ride from Zurich is "Molki Stäfa" right next to the train station with something like 250+ different cheeses on offer or Bannwart's Käsespezialitäten in Oberrieden also next to the train station.

        >Public transport
        The important things: Sun-Thu public transport stops around 0:30 so plan around it on Fri and Sat you got night train services ususally once a hour in all directions.
        It's functional and you get almost anywhere with it. For smaller towns Baden, Aarau and Rapperswil. Else you can get to Lucern or Bern in about 1h so why not?

        Enjoy your trip and if you got questions feel free to ask.

          Oh well I forgot, for the cure little town, visit Regensberg, it's a old castle that sits on a small mountain. Just take the S5 S-Bahn to Dielsdorf from there you can either walk up hill (about 20min) or take the bus.

          I would visit Lauterbrunnen/Murren areas as well as Lugano/Lake Como.

          thanks a lot guys

          If you're still around OP let's meet, I will show you a nice food/drinks place.

          I don't think my levels of autism will allow me to meet anyone from here, but thank you anyway

          what is the general state of card payment options in Switzerland? where I'm from I can use Visa in 95% of places, should I prepare lots of cash instead?

            You can pay with a card almost everywhere. You won't need much cash.

            Card are accepted almost everywhere, but having some 50-100 CHF cash in your pocket won't hurt for small things like roasted chestnuts.

    If the weather is depressingly foggy go anywhere uphill and you'll see the sun again.

    the platform on the Üetliberg hill gives a good view on the geography and it's a place to go on walks

    alpamare in Pfäffikon is a waterpark some distance away, about an hour by train and bus. Most of it is indoors, with a variety of heated pools outside. one of the heated pools playing music under water. lots of slides, artificial river, wave pool
