Without a doubt, my new favorite way to travel by public transit in Zurich is the ZVV Schiff. The Zurich public transportation system includes all the usual suspects: trains, buses, trams / streetcars. Then, one day someone mentioned traveling by boat. And it turned out that we have an easy port right in our village! So easy!
We don’t have a car here, and don’t plan to get one. There have been only a few times that using a car would have been a convenience, but so far the public transportation system has been excellent. And the boat system is a huge perk!
The kids love it! There’s a restaurant on the lowest level, restrooms, a bar, and several sun decks. Check out the inside:
If he wants to, Peter can pick up the boat from home and arrive at the Tonhalle about 20 minutes later. Anyone who comes to visit us will definitely have to take a boat ride … it’s just a requirement!
Anyone know of other cities with this kind of public transit?
