California is a state where everyone drives. The public transport allowed us to relax, not worry about parking.

Loved the layout and open air feeling. Plenty of shops, access upstairs (covered by a permanent open air roof for rainy days) to all the trams etc. Public transport should be this good everywhere!

We travelled Europe by train and this was one of the easiest friendly stations to get around in and find assistance.

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...

and plenty of shopping and eating for while you wait. A pretty nice way to travel and no need for a car, with the train stations close in town

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!
