Arriving via Zurich Airport

Zurich International Airport (IATA Code: ZRH) is located 10 km from downtown Zurich and ETH Zurich.

Train service connects Zurich International Airport and main station “Zürich HB” approximately every 6 - 10 minutes (25 - 30 minutes ride). From the main station please either take Tram 10 (Direction "Oerlikon" or "Zürich Flughafen, Fracht") or 6 (Direction "Zoo") to “ETH Zentrum/Universitätsspital” (3 stops) or walk 1 km to ETH Zurich's main building (Conference Venue).

Tram line 10 (Direction "Bahnhofstrasse/HB") directly connects the airport and the conference venue (Tram stop "ETH Zentrum/Universitätsspital", approx. 30 minutes ride).

For your connection see Zurich Transport Association. A single trip from/to the airport cost CHF 6.40 (ZVV 2 zones ticket). Taxi from/to the airport to ETH is about CHF 60.

We highly recommend not to rent a car at the airport since there is literally no parking space available near ETH Zurich.
