Main Train Station

Zurich’s Main Train Station, or Hauptbahnhof, is located in the city’s Old Town section. More passengers pass through the Main Train Station daily than any other train station in Europe. Switzerland’s location, in the centre of Europe, makes it an ideal hub for trains from surrounding countries. The station space is massive, with an area totalling 55,000 square metres. That space is often put to exciting cultural use—during Christmas a massive tree is erected and vendors sell one-of-a-kind holiday treats. Its location in the centre of Zurich is convenient to tourist attractions and hotels.

  • Shop whilst you wait for your train at Zurich’s Main Train Station, where you will find the underground ShopVille, which features 200 shops and hosts events such as flea markets, skating, and volleyball.
  • Look up, whilst you’re in Zurich’s Main Train Station, and watch the NOVA 3-D hanging LED lighting display as it changes colours, an art installation celebrating the station’s 150th anniversary.
  • Grab a bite to eat at Au Premier restaurant, in the Main Train Station, which features a seasonal menu and has earned 13 Gault Millau points.

If you take the train into Zurich, you’ll likely disembark at the Main Train Station. To get there from elsewhere in the city, use Zurich’s excellent public transportation system. Most visitors to Zurich use a combination of trains, trams, and buses, which are well integrated. You can rent a car, but parking in the city is a big challenge, and the public transport should take care of your needs. Almost all of the tram routes stop at the Main Train Station, named Hauptbahnhof Station. There are several bus stops located nearby the station.
