There are various ways to get to the conference venue depending on where you start your journey.

From the main station (Zurich HB/Hauptbahnhof)

By tram

Tram #10 takes you directly from Zurich HB to ETH (CAB). If you arrive at Zurich HB, go to the station hall and turn towards the large ad-board, following the signs towards Löwenstrasse/Bahnhofstrasse.


Downstairs, you see straight ahead a sign directing you up-left to Haltestelle Bahnhofplatz Tram #3, #10, #14, directions Klusplatz, Oerlikon/Seebach. Go up there and take Tram #10 heading to Oerlikon.


In case you come from Zurich airport by train, your ticket is also valid for the tram trip. Otherwise, your train ticket is most likely not valid for public transport within Zurich and you have to buy a ticket at one of the blue ticket machines.


For this particular trip, a short-trip ticket (Kurzstrecken-Billet) is sufficient. Such a ticket costs CHF 2,60 (~ € 2,02) and is valid for one single trip (no change of train) within the next 30 minutes. You can obtain it by pressing the yellow button on the ticket machine.


Leave Tram #10 at the third stop, named «ETH/Universitätsspital». The trip from Zurich HB to ETH/Universitätsspital should take about 6 minutes. After getting out of the tram, turn left. CAB is the next building on your right hand side.


By foot

If you do not mind to climb a few stairs, then you can simply walk from Zurich HB to ETH (CAB). Depending on your speed, this should take somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes. From the station hall, follow the signs directing you downward towards Track 21-24 and Landesmuseum.


Downstairs turn right and follow the signs towards Bus #46.


Once you reach daylight, the situation should look roughly as shown below.


Cross the river and go straight through the portal (it is called Walchetor) in the large building ahead. Cross the street and turn left on the other side. After some 15 meters, behind Hotel Arlette, there is on your right hand side a stairs called Leonhards-Treppe that you should go up.


Upstairs proceed straight ahead, cross the large road with tram tracks and climb the slope/stairs to the left of the restaurant «Pizza, Pasta, Ciao». Proceed further straight ahead, crossing the road/tram tracks a second time you will find another stairs labeled Weinberg-Fussweg. Go up straight, passing the church on your left hand side, until you reach a street called Clausiusstrasse. Turn right into Clausiusstrasse and after some 15 meters you will find yet another stairs (the third and final one on this trip), labeled Clausius-Steig. At its lower end, there is a fountain, in case you need some refreshment now. Go up Clausius-Steig, and turn right into the street ahead (Sonneggstrasse). On the right hand side you pass Hotel Sunnehus. Then turn left into a small path directly before the pink-ish house and proceed to the other side of the house.


On the other side of the street you face you find your destination, the CAB building.

By polybahn

From Zurich Central you can also go up to ETH by Polybahn. This is a small cablecar that connects Central with the so-called Polyterasse below the ETH main building. Tickets for public transport (in Zone 10) are also valid for Polybahn, but there are also special tickets that cost CHF 1.00 and are valid for a trip with Polybahn only.
From exit Polyterasse you just proceed straight ahead along the ETH main building and follow the tram tracks of #10 that turn left into Universitätsstrasse.

By taxi

For this trip there is not much difference in convenience compared to using the tram. If nevertheless you want to take a taxi, direct it towards ETH (CAB), Universitätsstrasse 6.

From Zurich airport

By train

The airport is directly connected by train to the main station. Just follow the railway signs to the underground station. Trains to Zurich leave about every 10 minutes during peak periods, travel time is also approximately 10 minutes (see the timetable). Once you got off at stop "Zurich HB" you can follow the advice above.

By tram

The new Glattalbahn tram service (tram # 10) provides direct connections between the airport and ETH Zurich (see the timetable). Get off at stop «ETH/Universitätsspital». After getting out of the tram, turn left. CAB is the next building on your right hand side.


From other places

By tram

The tram station closest to the conference site is called «ETH/Universitätsspital». It is served by tram lines #9, #10, and #6.

You should check that ETH/Universitätsspital is listed as part of the range for short-trip tickets (Kurzstrecken-Billets) from that particular station. The stations within this range are listed below the yellow button on ticket machines. If ETH/Universitätsspital is not listed there, you have to buy a normal ticket. These tickets are valid for all public transport within Zurich (Zone 10), let it be train, tram, bus, or boat.

Valid here means that you can make as many trips as you like within the given timespan.

You can also use Google Maps to plan your tram rides.
