Directions from Zürich Hauptbahnhof to U.S. Consulate in Zurich?

Hello, Sorry I couldn't find this in a thread so have to ask. Could someone tell me the best way to get from the Zurich Bahnhof to the U.S. Embassy? I have to take my son in to renew his Passport and I don't know my way around the Trams there or any other best way to get to it. We need to be there early and he has to be in person. We have to catch an early train into Zurich and will have limited time to get to the Consular for our morning appointment. Best now as I can't ask for directions later. I Googled it but it doesn't say how to get there. Thanks ahead of time for your help.

I mapped it at over 3 kilometers.

Wouldn't taking a cab make sense, given your time constraints?

You are best to take a tram, Zurich taxis are expensive, notoriously slow and good at going to the wrong places, the tram is the best option.

Use www.zvv.ch and enter your route in to get directions then the Number 2 or number 4 tram is the best option

Re: Directions from Zürich Hauptbahnhof to U.S. Consulate in Zurich?

You can catch the number 4 tram at the HB/Bahnhofquai stop and exit at the Feldeggstrasse stop. No need to change tram lines and it's just a short walk from there (about 250m).

The area is covered by Google Streetview, if you want to familiarize yourself with the area beforehand.
