Depending on what she is looking for, ordering on line might be the best option. Shipping fee for one box is chf 9.95.

Otherwise Dietlikon is probably a better option and it is open Saturday nights as well.

Re: Travelling to nearest IKEA

Total bliss here, compared to the UK- re getting bus + train timetable and pay one fare for the whole journey. In the UK, ever since Mrs T privatised trains and buses- it is a total nightmare. Even in the same town, if you buy a day ticket it is not valid on some buses. And in our UK town, the bus station is at the other end of the town from the train station, and no integrated timetable. Enjoy.

Note that that price is only applicable if said box doesn't exceed certain measurements/30kg weight. If they deliver anything bigger/heavier, you pay CHF 99.- if you live up to 30min driving distance from an IKEA, if you live further away delivery costs CHF 199.-

That's very true! When I last went to the UK, I bought a day ticket and was outraged when the ticket barrier gobbled it up. Was about to complain about it to the station staff, when OH reminded me that this is how it works in the UK.

Re: Travelling to nearest IKEA

Amybum you sound if you are quite new to Zurich. Do you drive? The mobility car sharing system here is excellent and you can take a car and drop it off wherever you want. See link.
