Zurich Questions

Question asked in : Zurich - 2 years ago

I am flying from Berlin to Madrid on Swiss Airways, with two long layovers in Zurich forth and back- 4 1/2 hours on the way there and 4 1/2 hours on the way back. Is it possible to get into the city from the airport and see a few things in this amount of time? What the fastest way to get from the airport to the city? And finally- I'll be allowed to exit the airport, right? All countries are Schengen and I have an EU residence permit.

Hi... Downtown is really close to the airport by train. Trains are below terminal 1, I believe, Swiss as well. There are fast connections as well, which makes your life easier. You should look for Zürich HB (Hauptbahnhof = Main station). In Zurich, you will be able to leave the main station and walk around for at least 2 hours. Bahnhofstrasse, the main street right beside the main Station is the main attraction, if you have little time to visit this cute city! The lake is at the end of the street.. Enjoy it!!!

Thats absolutely no problem... there are about 10 trains/hour from the Airport to main Railway-Station of Zürich, ride takes about 15mins, means you will have about 3hrs to explore the Shoppings on Bahnhofstrasse, see the lake or famous artmuseum... have fun!
