Zurich - Hotel near airport?

by Laurina

Hi everyone...I have a 6 hour stop over between flights in Zurich...is it small? Can I easily walk around town from the aiprot? I'll be knackered afte traveling for 12 hours but I prefer tnot to stay in a hotel to rest...

any suggestions where to go chill get a nice cup of coffee or otherwise soak in the Swiss atmosphere?

Or in the worst case, which hotel is close to the airport, price range approx. $100?

Thanks, Laurina

Zürich airport (called Kloten) is just 12 km north of the city centre.
All northbound trains from Zürich hauptbahnhof (the main railway station) stop at the airport (and of course the southbound trains to Zürich stop there as well) and many of the surburban trains also terminate there.
This means it is easy to get to the city centre and it will only take a couple of minutes. A ticket will cost you about CHF 10.
So yes you have plenty of time to visit Zürich, just make sure you're back at the airport at time and check if you need a visa for Switzerland.
The main railway station is in the heart of Zürich so when you exit the building you have many streets with nice shops and restaurants in front of you.
If you prefer staying at the airport I'm sure there are many airport hotels as Zürich/Kloten is such a large airport.

I doubt you need a visa for Switzerland if you're Italian.

lol - i shall not think so!
senti - fai come ti hanno detto... prendi il treno che dall'aereoporto ti porta in centro. ti trovi sulla via principale d zurigo, e poi da lì puoi visitare tutto il vecchio nucleo.
alla peggio, x hotels, il mövenpick è in zona aereoporto, ed hanno anche una navetta gratuita che ti posta lì.

divertiti a zurigo.... un pochino t'invidio

If you do need to stay at the airport, try the McDonalds Hotel. It's called Golden Arches... truly strange but quite functional and practical. Free shuttle from the airport there and back. A big huge building in the middle of nowhere... next to fields and cows... and in the back, the airport. As Zurich is a pretty expensive place, expect to pay a bit more than $100.

But I'd go with heading into town from the airport, it's really convenient.

Italians don't need visas but you will need to show your Italian passport. Switzerland is not part of the EU, so therefore no border crossings without checks.

McDonalds hotel is way off. They would have to drive you all around the huge airport area including runways.
Better go into the city and have a walk against your trombosis :-)
BTW, when are you coming?

Travel Tips for Zürich

A bit of history...

by bugalugs

During the 11th and 12th centuries Zurich's traders built up great wealth from textiles such as wool and silk. In 1336 a burgomaster named Rudolf Brun pushed the wealthy merchants out of power and handed control to a workers guild, which lasted until the 19th century.

UP TO DATE: BenchArt Zürich...

by swissgabe

UP TO DATE: BenchArt Zürich 2001 (from 18 MAY to 17. SEP 01) - see also my Travelogue

The city of Zürich is getting a new look. For the whole summer 2001, Zürich will become a city filled with benches of all unusual, strange and amazing types. Hundreds upon hundredes of places to sit are being newly created or remodelled by a group of artists including sculptors, painters, graphic artists, decorators and designers. That's BenchArt Zürich 2001. On sidewalks, in frequented places, in parks, around the lake, at train stations and at the airport - everywhere passers-by go, they will have the occasion to stop, to look, to enjoy and to sit... and get to know Zürich and its people in a new way.

Schrebergarten (allotment)

by yumyum

Allotments are popular with part of the population. Our family also had one when I was a kid. You can rent one on a yearly basis for around 100 Euro. There are lots of rules and regulations and you have to keep it tidy otherwise it will be taken away from you. You can grow all sorts of fruit and veggies and flowers there. It's also popular for barbeques, but you are not allowed to stay overnight!

ice skating

by german_eagle

This ice rink was opened in 1930 and is still in our days the largest open-air ice rink in Europe. Whoa! Season is from early Oct to mid March. Please see details on opening hours on their website.

They have lockers there where you can change and leave your streets clothes. You can rent the equipment (reasonable prices) and skate yourself or you can just watch - which we did when we visited. And both is fun.

I recommend you take the Dolderbahn (see Transportation tip) to the ice rink. It's just a short walk from the top station.

Admission fee in 2009 is 7 Sfr.

What a lot of swans!

by gordonilla

It does seem that the Swiss cities on lakes always have lots of birdlife - apart from the swans shown here, my recolelction was that Zurich had a lot of pigeons. They seem to be fed by well meaning citizens.
