I found this to be one of my favorite train stations in Europe. It is very easy to navigate and has a ton of quick food options to grab something for your trip. I never felt unsafe, and it was just me and my 12 yr old daughter travelling. Easy to connect to all the trams too.

...what's next? Bus stations? Waiting rooms? Anyway, I feel compelled to add my review here because I literally pass here every single day of the week. What can be said is, it's Switzerland's second-largest train station, it gets insanely crowded at rush hour, and there are reasonable options for late-evening or weekend shopping since it runs on a different schedule...

The station is city center. The underground has lots of fast food/carry out options. We ate there several times since the restaurants are VERY expensive. The tourist center in the station was very helpful each time we stopped by.

This transport hub whilst not an attraction so much in itself, is a marvel to behold. It, like everything else in the beautiful city, runs like clockwork. Well designed and easy to navigate for foreigners!

Took the train from Zurich to Bern. The train was right on time to the second, I was really impressed because the weather was really cold for me. The train was fast and the journey was smooth, the cars are well maintained and are clean. The SBB ticket inspectors are courteous and helpful. The station itself in Bern is another... More
