En route to Barcelona, we're spending a "catch up on sleep and get used to the time zone" night in Zürich. We're staying in Kloten, near the airport, but as I understand it, it's not too hard to get into Zürich city centre from Kloten. We'll be arriving around 4 PM, so add customs and baggage and transport and we'll be checked in around 5:30 PM, just in time to shower, change, and have a nice dinner.
I'd really love to keep this pretty cheap -- say under CHF 35 per person, all told. (I drink occasionally, my wife does not drink.) We're going to be very, very tired, so someplace navigable by Hochdeutsch-speaking American tourists in a fog of jet lag would be appreciated.
I used to live near Geneva yet I never managed to get to Zürich... funny how the world works.
