This is a nice way to get around in zurich. Safe, comfortable and easy yo understand. Useful because it works till relatively late at night. And much cheaper than a taxi.

The Dolderbahn is a unique experience that ends with a great overlook of the city of Zurich and Lake Zurich. You can also get a look at the Dolder Grand Hotel which is classic European majestic hotel. It is an adventure you should not miss.

Cool experience going up this well-oiled Dolderbahn. Some nice walking/running trails at the top of the line if you have time, with a look-out tower that gives you an above-the-treeline view of Zurich, through to the Alps.

Did it as we had it included in our Zurich pass. Get no 9 tram and it drops you at the bottom. Very nice looking restaurant and theatre at the top. This is not for tourists but used by the people that live up the...More

Many options for train travel around the city, maps were very well laid out and the routes were easily understood even if you only spoke in English. The trains were clean and ran on time and with the Zurich City Pass train travel is included....More

This is a cute little funicular that will take you up the small hillside of Zürich. It´s a short ride, but worth it if you want to go up and see the Dolder Gran without walking up the steep streets.

This is a really cool funicular, if you're into that sort of thing - what's even better is had a nice cocktail and snack break at the fancy Grand hotel while at the top.

This is such an adorable little train to make your way up towards the Dolder Grand hotel. Upon arrival you may head toward the woods for a long stroll or depending on the season go ice skating in winter ( outdoors )

While it might seem like only public transportation it’s a fun, easy and engaging ride for children and adults alike. It makes Zürich feel urban and outdoorsy, granting access to the forest so close above the city.
