Travelling to Zurich

Travel times from major European cities

How to reach the University by car

Zurich is well connected by motorway. We recommend to park the car at 'University Zurich Irchel' parking garage and continue by tram, as there is no affordable long term parking in the city centre.

How to reach the University from the Airport

There are excellent train connections from the airport to Zurich main train station (Hauptbahnhof)

How to reach the University main building (KOL) from the train station (Hauptbahnhof)

From the train station, tram number 6 takes you to the main builing (KOL). Alight at the tram stop 'Platte'. You can also walk the entire distance (uphill, 10-15 minutes). If you want to walk but skip the steep part you can take the historic 'Polybahn' cable car.
