Hauptbahnhof – Central Station

A frantic pace

This enormous place breaks the usual calmness that you feel on the streets of Switzerland. Zurich's Central Station (Zurich Hauptbahnhof) is one of the busiest railway stations in the world: since this is the last stop of the grand project that was the country's first railway line built during the 19th century, this station became one of the main meeting places for travellers from Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and many other European countries. Nowadays, its platforms are still home to frantic activity throughout the whole day, as around 2,700 trains pass by here each day, and during the night; and if that wasn't enough, the trains run non-stop. The station's impressive installations are well worth visiting: we suggest that you make the most of your visit and have a coffee while you observe the building, and the travellers coming and going, as this will be a an extremely curious experience.
