A Touch of Zurich
By Therese Bruning
25 October 2010





Our mode of transport from Wuerzburg to Zurich was by train and once reaching Frankfurt station, it was a 4 hour journey to Zurich. The ICE train First Class cabin was again very comfortable with a good range of food and drinks available on board. I love the way the espresso machine makes its way down the aisle to offer you the freshest brew, so you don’t even have to leave your seat if that’s your preference. Although the scenery on route was unremarkable compared to what was to come later in our trip, the journey itself went quite quickly.
 
After a late afternoon arrival into Zurich we caught a taxi to Hotel Crown Plaza situated in Zurich West. Having less than 2 hours spare before a prearranged dinner, and this being the only chance we were going to get to see Zurich on this trip, we hopped on the tram and less than 20 minutes later found ourselves at Bahnhofstrasse , a shopping boulevard lined with department stores, boutiques and most importantly (depending on your priorities), chocolate shops selling the best Swiss chocolate. Our Swiss Pass covered tram travel and the tram system appears easy to use once you have worked out your route, with clear information regarding each stop announced on board.

We walked further down Bahnhofstrasse into Zurich’s Old Town for a quick look at the historic buildings surrounded by intriguing alleyways lined with boutiques & other specialist shops. The exploration was short and sweet, but at least I feel I’ve seen a little something of the heart of Zurich in my short time here and look forward to returning.

Isn't that the most frustrating thing about travelling - finding yourself with never enough time to really explore! I had a very brief visit to a beautiful town in Norway that I am now very keen to go back and see more of. There just aren't enough hours in the day when you're travelling... You did well to jump on a tram and have a quick look around. Public transport is the way to go!
