Public Transport

Public transport from Zurich Main Station (Zürich Hauptbahnhof)

At the main station, take tram No. 11 (tram stops "Bahnhofstrasse" or "Bahnhofquai" in the direction of "Messe/Hallenstadion" to the stop called "Bucheggplatz" (takes about 10 min). Please change there to connecting Bus No. 69 to "ETH Hönggerberg" (which is the terminal bus stop).

Public transport from Zurich Airport

After reclaiming the baggage, follow the signs "Bahn/Railway" to ticket counters and machines. Press the left (red) key at the bottom where it says "Zurich City" (make sure that the display shows "2 Std"). The machine prompts for 6.60 CHF and accepts coins as well as 20.- CHF banknotes, and gives change. The ticket is valid during the next 2 hours for any train to Zurich as well as for the trams and buses within the city (streetcar, Strassenbahn). If you plan to stay the whole day, a day ticket (valid 24 hours) for 13.20 CHF is more suitable. Take any train in the direction of Zürich Hauptbahnhof that stops at Zürich Oerlikon (e.g., the trains called S 2 or S 16 or some IR- and RX-trains) to the station called "Zürich Oerlikon" (about 5 min) and change to the connecting Bus No. 80 at the bus stop "Oerlikon Nord" in the direction "Triemlispital". Leave the bus at the stop "ETH Hönggerberg" (after about 10 min).
