A very short tide but great fun and free! You can get to this funicular by riding the tram. We rode it down and back up. Only 176 meters but worth the trip.

Easy to miss station just across from Central Plaza, Tram and start of Old Town. A fun short ride uphill to ETH offering great views of the city, the university, and overall fun ride. Great for kids.

The Polybahn is good fun for tourists and comes in handy for students travelling to Uni. I wouldn't recommend the peak times as it can be crowded.

Good evening Kay You can catch a 4 or 13 tram. Get off at Limmatplatz. Or catch a 31 bus and get off at Militar/Langstrasse. Alternatively, you can walk as it is not really that far. Hope this is a help to you.
