Re: 20 Minuten at the Hauptbahnhof in Zurich?

In Baden the 20min tends to disappear pretty quickly.
Maybe you need to get to the station earlier.

There aren't any containers on SBB property az Zürich HB because for some reason 20 Minuten and the people who manage HB aren't getting on too well. But there are plenty of 20 Minuten containers at VBZ stops etc.

Thanks, I change trains at HB so will see if I have time to go to a tram stop to get a paper.
Curious that there is Blick am Abend but no 20 Minuten. I could understand banning all free papers given the amount of litter that they generate.

Re: 20 Minuten at the Hauptbahnhof in Zurich?

Have you thought of reading it on the smartphone? This would be my choice. Or alternatively, there is almost always one or more left in the train....

From my somewhat limited understanding of the situation, Blick am Abend makes some contribution towards SBB's de-littering costs.

You have to get there well before 7am to get a paper, or else pick up a used one in train - they`re recyled to the next reader.

Re: 20 Minuten at the Hauptbahnhof in Zurich?

Hello there!


I usually take trams 3, 9 and 10 and they are always full of 20 minuten.
I think you should be able to find them if you take any of these trams.
Good luck

Re: 20 Minuten at the Hauptbahnhof in Zurich?

I actually found one in the Hauptbahnhof, just opposite the stairs with the green "Shopville" sign (near the taxi stand)

Seriously, I thought they always had 20min stands in HB - just better hidden than the Blick am Abend ones

20 Minuten has the tram stops saturated so best is to swing past the stations either south (towards Bahnhofstr.) or East (towards Central) to pick one up with ease.

Re: 20 Minuten at the Hauptbahnhof in Zurich?

you do realize that these 20min papers all full of marketing including in the new stories where you are being sold the norm of certain interest groups? A lot of news is like that but you must be especially cautious with free news that is literally handed to you at rush hour as you walk into the train station...
