How to Get Around in Zurich

How to Get Around in Zurich

With its picturesque lake, charming Old Town, and elevated surroundings, getting around Zurich doesn’t just mean traveling from A to B—it can be an experience in itself. From efficient public transit to scenic aerial journeys, here’s how to make your way in Switzerland’s biggest city.

Public Transport

Made up of buses, trams, and trains, Zurich’s public transport network is simple yet efficient. Singles and day tickets can be purchased from any stop or station, or you can book a Swiss Travel Pass or Zurich Card to gain access to public transportation in addition to top sights and attractions.

Tuk-Tuk or Bus Tour

Though by no means native to this land, the electric tuk-tuk is an increasingly popular option for time-limited or eco-conscious visitors to Zurich. The lightweight vehicle allows you to zip between top attractions with ease, though more-traditional bus tours also operate, allowing stress-free access to the city’s steep surrounds.

On Foot

Zurich’s compact center can be easily explored on foot, making walking tours a great way to gain intimate insight into the city’s cultural heritage. Stroll between Old Town sights, or select a specialized itinerary—whether you have a hankering for Swiss specialties or an interest in the region’s ancient history, you have options.

Cable Car or Ferry Ride

No trip to Zurich is complete without a glimpse of Switzerland’s natural landscape. Take Zurich’s only cable car up to Felsenegg Lookout for sweeping views of the montane region, or book a Lake Zurich boat trip to admire striking scenery from the water. You can purchase tickets for each journey separately, or take advantage of tours that combine the experiences with city sightseeing for a hassle-free overview of Zurich’s best bits.
