The weirdest of all public transport methods.
Takes you from near the river up to the university.
Worth going up for a nice view of Zurich

It is one of the shortest funicular rides but it is great experience for kids. It is in included in zone 110 tickets and takes only a couple of minutes. Recommended for kids of all ages. It is opposite the central station tram stop.

OK, this "elevator" is not really a sensation, but, whith a short ride it brings you up where you will have a great view over Zurich downtown.

The polybahn is a lift up to to the university. It leaves every couple of minutes until 19.15 and is included in your day travel ticket. Jump on with the locals and students and ride up the hill to take a look at the city from the magnificent terrace in front of the university. You can also get some cheap food at the university canteen.

Polybahn is one of the shortest Funicular I know of. If you have bought a public transportation ticket for Zurich, it's included. It takes you up to Polyterrasse where you have a nice view over Zurich and reminds you that you are in Switzerland.
