Zurich on foot

All major sights are within walking distance from Central Station and can be discovered in just a few hours on foot.

Whether with a city map on a round tour recommended by Zurich Tourism or under your own steam, it’s easy to get to know Zurich on foot. The Old Town of Zurich, the Grossmünster and Fraumünster churches, Lake Zurich, the Lindenhof and the famous Bahnhofstrasse are all within a 1 or 2 kilometer radius and easy to reach on foot in just 20 to 30 minutes.

On the way there are also many restaurants and shops.

The way from the Main Railway Station to Bellevue can be shortened with a tram ride, for which we recommend purchasing a Zürich Card. This is available at all ticket machines and in addition offers you reductions on museum entrance fees as well as reductions in selected restaurants and shops.
