Zürich app

This item appears on page 5 of the April 2022 issue.

Offering tips, maps and other assistance for visiting Zürich, Switzerland, the Zürich City Guide app can be downloaded for free on Apple or Android.

The app also allows visitors to purchase a digital Zürich card (adult, CHF27 [near $29], 24 hours, or CHF53, 72 hours), which offers unlimited public transport in the city and bordering areas as well as discounts on some entry fees and at certain restaurants. Included with card purchase is transport by S-Bahn or tram between Zürich Airport and the city center as well as on the tram to the top of Uetliberg mountain, just outside the city, and on the Felsenegg cable car and, in summer, on river cruises.

A digital mobile ticket is displayed in the app for Zürich Card holders to use when boarding transportation.
