Is There a Casino in Zurich?

All I can find is the Grand Casino in Baden.

There is not one in Zurich?

If I wanted to go, I'm not sure how to get to Baden on the train from where I will be, near Hallenstadion.

I'll have one free day in Zurich, which is unfortunately a Sunday, so visiting the churches is out and I like visiting foreign casinos when I travel...Kind of like collecting casinos in countries.

At least Geneva has Movenpick near the airport. (not a bad casino, by the way)

Hope this helps.

Thanks, but that seems even farther than Baden

Per the Swiss Rail website, it's about the same travel time - depends on how you go.

Unfortunately it's true - there is no Casino in Zurich itself. There is only a very limited number of casinos allowed overall Switzerland. When the national authorities granted the licences maybe some 10 years ago, Zurich got away empty-handed. Rumours say this was due to envy against the most important town of Switzerland...

So in Baden you find indeed the closest Casino. It is easily reachable: Hallenstadion is very close to Zurich-Oerlikon train station. From there you could even take a direct S-Bahn (regional train). But the fastest connection is via Zurich main station (change trains there). Check www.rail.ch for the schedule. The casino in Baden is only 5 min. walking from the train station.

To Pfaeffikon it will take something longer and if I remember right, the Casino there is quite some walking time from the train station.
