“I Know, But ...”

Even If There Is No Other Option, Everyone Can Do Something.

Staying longer in one place and calculating the CO₂e emissions generated by the journey help protect the environment. With the myclimate calculator, you can estimate emissions, as well as make a contribution towards protecting the climate by supporting local or international projects. 


Calculate Your Emissions:

By Car
By Plane
By Cruise Ship

Not Possible?

The Alternative:

If you have no choice but to fly direct to Zurich, you should refrain from using a rental car once you are there.

In Zurich, the best and easiest way to get from one place to another is by public transportation.


Tip: Save Money.

With the practical Zürich Card city pass, travel on all public transportation – such as boats, cable cars, and the charming Polybähnli funicular – is included. In addition, e-bikes can be hired with the Zürich Card Bike. Admission to many museums is free with both cards!
