FAQs for booking trains to Zurich

Right in the heart of Zurich, wedged between the Sihl and Limmat rivers, you can find Zurich Central Train Station. If you're getting a train to Zurich, this will be the station at which you'll most likely arrive, and its location is perfect for any visitor wanting to embark on a day of sightseeing. Within walking distance, you will find the Swiss National Museum and the beautiful gardens of Platzspitz, so you've already got plenty to see. Other notable areas to visit by foot include Zurich Old Town, the Alfred Escher Monument, Augusto Giacometti Entrance Hall, WOW Museum – Room for Illusions, and the Laderach ShopVille for those looking for some retail therapy. Getting around the city itself on Zurich trains is also very easy and accessible, though you may find the tram service is more convenient for those short hop-on, hop-off type journeys. You can buy reasonably priced tickets for zones of the city rather than destinations, and you can use any form of transport in that zone for the period the ticket is valid. Alternatively, affordable bike rental services are readily available around the city.

When looking for cheap train tickets to Zurich, you may need to check whether the train station has any luggage storage facilities available, especially if you intend to start sightseeing straight away rather than dumping bags at your hotel. Luckily for anyone travelling on Zurich trains, they have the luxury of storing their belongings upon arrival by rail to Zurich Central Station. You have two options; you can store backpacks and smaller cases in personal lockers, paying a small daily fee in the machines provided. Alternatively, and if you have large bags or suitcases to store, you can find luggage storage facilities on the north side of the train station, close to the stores on the station's ground floor. Though the rates for these are a little bit higher than the lockers, they are still very reasonable.

Should you need a special service, like mobility assistance, make sure to check the Zurich Central Station website when booking your train tickets to Zurich. There are special assistance points on the train station's mezzanine level, and staff is on hand to assist on the Zurich trains themselves.

If you're travelling by train to Zurich, you will need a valid passport as well as your train ticket.

It's therefore recommended to always carry it with you when travelling by train in Switzerland. Also, be mindful that a photograph of your passport may not suffice with some train staff and especially with local authorities.

The ticket price can vary depending on general demand and more importantly where you’re coming from. If you’re leaving from a popular departure point like Milan for instance, prices usually start around £118.
