Tram Museum Zurich

The ringing and rattling of trams is part of everyday life in Zurich. The Tram Museum provides a stage for this charming means of transportation.

Trams have a long-standing tradition in Zurich. At the Tram Museum, tram enthusiasts can gain an insight into the history of this urban form of transportation.

Original vehicles dating from 1897 to 1968, uniforms, ticket machines, a large model tram layout, and the Cobralino children’s tram are just some of the museum’s highlights.

In addition to various other vehicles, the oldest streetcar from 1897 also runs on museum line 21. This route was specially added to the network of the Zurich Transportation System (VBZ) and operates between the Tram Museum and the city center.

The Museum Line operates every last weekend of the month. The exception is December.
