Omaha, USA to Zurich is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Omaha to Zurich. When traveling from Omaha in October, plan for little chillier days in Zurich, with highs around 58°F, while nights are about the same with lows around 45°F. On the 26th (Sat), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Lauterbrunnen.
