FAQs for booking trains to Zurich

How to get to the centre of Zurich from Zurich Central Train Station?

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.

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.

Can you leave luggage at train stations in Zurich?

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.

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.
