Transportation in Zurich 

Due to the sufficient infrastructure in the city, public transport is extremely popular. Whether it’s the S-Bahn, trams, buses or boats, there are ample choices for moving around. However, while public transport in London, New York, and Tokyo is understandable given the size of the cities, Zurich is significantly smaller, meaning that public transport is more of a convenience than a necessity.

With 16 railway stations (and 10 additional stops) within Zürich's city borders, there are 5 other major passenger railway stations. Three of them belong to the ten most frequented railway stations in Switzerland: Stadelhofen, Oerlikon, Altstetten, Hardbrücke, and Enge. 

Also, Zürichsee-Schifffahrtsgesellschaft (ZSG) operates passenger vessels on the Limmat and the Lake Zürich, connecting the surrounding towns between Zürich and Rapperswil.

When it comes to paying for transport like trains, it is best to keep in mind that the cost will change based on the zone that is being travelled to. Guests can get a half-fare card for one month for 120Sfr or can choose the likes of a Swiss Travel Pass or Zurich Card that covers travel and entry into many museums, as well as other reductions. The Zurich Card costs 27Sfr for 24 hours and 53Sfr for 72 hours. 

Weather in Zurich 

As in any location, the weather plays a big role in the success or failure of a corporate or leisure trip. Naturally, the weather changes throughout the year and is defined by the seasons. From cold winters to boiling summers, guests should be prepared for change when they come to Zurich.

January is the height of winter with snow and ice forming alongside nippy 0-degree temperatures. This continues through to the next month but begins to brighten up by March, with the first buds appearing and temperatures hitting 10-15 degrees. By the time June, July and August appear, the sun is out and hot days are regular (over 30 degrees!). November becomes a foggy few weeks while the year is rounded off with December and bit more fog - just for a change.

It is a safe bet to bring hats and scarves in the colder months and t-shirt and sunglasses in the warmer months. 

The best time to visit Zurich is between June and August when the temperatures have mellowed out and the city (and the lake) can be indulged with other adventurers.
