Taking the Train to Zurich in Switzerland

We stayed in a hotel (the Movenpick Airport - a typical business class hotel - nothing special one way or the other) just outside of Zurich. Plan was to take the train or tram into Zurich for the day.

The concierge at the hotel suggested the train as it is much faster. So we did that. The only problem we had at the automatic ticket machine was not knowing the correct name for the station we wanted. Fortunately we got help from another traveler and the correct selection is Zurich HB.

In retrospect, though, since we were touring, we should have gotten an all day tram ticket. Both tram and train stations were at different ends of the same platform. A bit more expensive but with a tram ticket we could have ridden trams all day all over the city.
