    by al_mary

We stayed in the Old Town, and we found
the main train station, Zürich Hauptbahnhof,
was within a 3-5 minute walk from our hotel
which made things easy for us for our day trips that we took.

The main station, Zürich Hauptbahnhof, also
has many shops and places to eat ....

A must to see inside the station, is the stations
"Guardian Angel" hanging from the ceiling near
the tracks. (see other picture)

The ground floor has 20 tracks (Tracks 3 - 18 and 51 - 54).
Tracks 3 - 18 are for trains coming from major areas in
Switzerland as well as most, if not all, international trains,
such as the EuroCity, Cisalpino, TGV and InterCityExpress.
Tracks 51 - 54 are mostly used by regional trains.

One floor below lie two tracks (Tracks 1 and 2), for the
exclusive usage of SZU S-Bahn trains, which head west
towards Uetliberg and the western part of the canton of Zürich.

Another floor below there are four tracks catering mainly to
regional trains in the canton. The S-Bahn trains use the four
tracks (Tracks 21 to 24).
