Getting to Zürich

By Plane: The nearest airport to our venue is Zürich International Airport (ZRH). If you arrive at one of the other airports in Switzerland – Basel (BSL) or Geneva (GVA) – you will need to take a train to Zürich in order to get to the venue.

By Train: Zürich Main Station (Zürich Hauptbahnhof / Zürich Hbf) has connections that route to all the neighboring countries, including Austria, Germany, France and Italy.


Getting to the Youth Hostel


A Taxi from the airport to the conference venue will cost approximately 65 CHF.


We recommend the SBB website or app for the most up-to-date public transportation route and ticketing information.

Public transportation tickets are available from vending machines or staffed windows at all Swiss airports, including Zürich, or via the SBB app (available for free in most app stores).

FROM Zürich Airport (ZRH) to the Youth Hostel via public transportation

Note: this will require changing from a train to a bus.

Take any train that will be stopping at Zürich Hardbrücke (not Zürich Hbf / Hauptbahnhof). There are many trains that stop there, including the S2, S16, several IR (InterRegio) and some IC (InterCity) trains.

At Zürich Hardbrücke, catch Bus 72 (direction: Morgenthal). You will reach the Jugendherberge stop in approximately 20 minutes. The bus stop is on the opposite side of the street from the Jugendherberge.
