Directions to Fortuna Studio Downtown Zurich
Map & Directions
General Directions from the Main Train Station:
Zurich main train station 'Hauptbahnhof' is located only 4 minutes by foot or 400 meters (about 410 yards). There are 4 trams connexions (6, 7 , 11, 13) at the Rennweg stop only a few meters away which can take you to most attractions in the city within minutes.
Once you are at the HB = Hauptbahnhof = main station you have to find the exit leading you to the Bahnhofstrasse, you will find a couple of exits that will take you there from inside the train station. Once on the Bahnhofstrasse you have to walk about 400 meters (410 yards approx.) or 4 minutes down the street (or you can take a 1 minute tram ride towards Rennweg stop). Once you get to the intersection of Bahnhofstrasse and Uraniastrasse you will see in front of you a bank (UBS), get across and look for the English Book Shop which will take you directly to Rennweg street. From there you just have to walk up the road. On your left you will see a Starbucks coffee and a few meters down you will find on your left hand side Fortunagassse. Look for building 36 and then buzz on the button.
From the Airport:
Zurich International Airport lies 13 kilometres north of the
city centre in the municipality of Kloten.
To get to town: The easiest and fastest way to get to and from the airport is by train. Take one of the fast trains or
slower S-trains leaving from the underground train station
near terminals 1 and 2 - if the sign on the platform reads Zürich HB (HB = Hauptbahnhof = main station), it’s the right train.
Up to ten trains leave an hour and the journey takes roughly ten minutes. Tickets can be bought at the counters or at the ticket machines (switch them to English on the first screen) next to the stairs leading down to the platforms. A ticket for an adult is 6.60Sfr and valid for one hour in the whole city (3 zones).
If you plan to do more travelling by public transport, make it a 24 hour ticket for just twice the price.
A taxi ride to central Zurich costs around 60Sfr. Taxi stands are just outside Arrivals 1 and 2. Only licensed taxis are
allowed to pick up passengers. They are generally safe and reliable.
Arriving by train:
Zurich’s main train station, referred to by locals as HB (short for Hauptbahnhof, say haa-bay), is right in the centre of the
city. All international and domestic trains leave and arrive here. From the platforms just follow the herd towards the
main hall, where you will find ticket offices and the tourist information. Trams, buses and taxis leave just outside
Arriving by bus:
Buses from other European countries arrive at the bus station (Bus Terminal Sihlquai, E-1), two minutes walk
north from the main train station.
The connections are run by private companies, most connections are to Eastern and Southern Europe. The bus station itself offers very few facilities but you can buy some tickets here. Zurich
sightseeing buses start here as well.
Arriving by car:
The Swiss highways A1, A2, A3 and A4 lead from all directions to Zurich and if you follow the signs to Zurich City the city centre is quite easy to reach. But parking is scarce and very expensive. Car parks and hotels charge up to 40Sfr for 24 hours and you can hardly find other parking spaces where you can leave your car for more than 90 minutes. For overnight parking you can try to
find a slot in the so-called blue zone in residential areas - parking there is free from 20:00 - 08:00, indicate your
arrival time on your parking disk.
