At Zurich Kloten Airport our desk is located in the rental car centre on the 1st level of parking area 3. The airport is just 15 minutes drive from the city centre on the A1L motorway, this road has tolls. Our Hardbrücke Station branch is on Pfingstweidstrasse just one stop away from the city's central train station.
Almost every major road in Switzerland centres on Zurich, making it the ideal base for exploring any part of the country. However, this does mean that the city centre can become very congested. Avoiding rush hours and using a Sat Nav will help you miss the worst of the traffic. Switzerland's roads are maintained to a very high standard and many are toll-operated. Our branch staff will advise you about the best way to pay any tolls.
Zurich spreads itself on both sides of the River Limmat and on the banks of Lake Zurich so the best way to start your visit is by taking a drive around in your rental vehicle. You will find the major attractions and get a feel for this fascinating city. The main historical sights are in the Old Town on the lakefront. Tour the old Gothic church, the Fraumünster with its windows painted by Marc Chagall then for an architectural contrast, admire the 20th-century Le Corbusier House. Dip into the Landesmuseum and the Kunsthaus but for something a little different visit the Jacob Coffee or the Beyer Watch museums. When it is time for shopping or lunch head to Niederdorf while there is something for everybody to enjoy at Zurich Zoo with its new Masoala Rainforest Hall. Search out the small canal of Schanzengraben and follow its course until it takes you to Lake Zurich where you will find long boardwalks. This is where the locals promenade in the evenings.
