Getting Around Zurich, Switzerland
Zurich is enhanced by an extensive and comprehensive transportations system that works. One way for tourists to get information about getting around is to head to the train station that houses the tourist’s information center loaded with brochures and maps to guide you around Switzerland.
Tourist and locals alike make a good use of the tram in Zurich as car traffic can be congested and parking space is precious. Zurich is European railway hub and a train ride from the airport to the center of town takes only 10 minutes. The train stations themselves bustle with shops and are attached to sprawling underground malls.
Various ticket categories are available with connections to most of Europe's important cities. Riders use the honor system but are expected to procure tickets when randomly ask. The trams are amazing as they criss-cross town at regular and frequent intervals. They travel above ground at a subway like speed making it a pleasure to use the system.
When you add boats to the mix, the entire region is covered. As in Venice, these boats serve the dual purpose of getting people around and providing a scenic tour of the city on the Limmat River. Larger touring boats also travel Lake Zurich, a voyage characterized by natural beauty and cosmopolitan charm.
Cyclists will love the streets of Zurich. It’s interesting to note that a charitable incentive in Zurich and other Swiss cities exists to offer free bicycle rentals supplying booth tending jobs to people that would otherwise be unemployed. Those opting to rent a car will enjoy the variety of environmentally conscious European models.
