Kinderspital, Zurich - by public transport ?

How do you get from Stadelhofen or Hauptbahnhof to the Kinderspital ? I've tried ZVV site as well as Kinderspital site and can't find any directions.

Apologies for being clueless...

Re: Kinderspital, Zurich - by public transport ?

It's not the easiest place to get to using public transportation-there's no stop right in front of it. We went there once with our daughter, and I was shocked that there's not better access...

Basically, you can take the Tram 3 or 8 to Hottingerplatz or the 33 to Hofstrasse and walk-it's about 10 minutes from Hottingerplatz and fairly uphill, as I recall. There were some signs, but I would print out a map.

If you search Steinwiesstr. 75, 8032 Zürich on map.search.ch, it will show you the two stops in relation to the Kinderspital.

this is the page with directions using public transport. If walking a little is not an option, then it's best to take a taxi.

Public transport ?

Transport in Zurich.

So an easy tip on navigation for anyone living in Zurich. Google maps works like a dream here...http://maps.google.com/

It gives you specific directions to and from locations by foot, public transport or by car. Once you've played around with it a bit - getting to and from anywhere becomes so so easy.

1. Go to http://maps.google.com/
2. Type in final destination you are looking for directions to.
3. Address you've searched for appears as icon on the map.
4. Click on this icon and choose 'get directions' from options at bottom of box.
5. Type in current location/home postal address
6. Some options are displayed on the left - Choose preferred type of transport (walking, driving, public transport) at top of list.

* The Public transport option is amazing since it gives you times of the next trams buses and trains etc.... having selected public transport you have 'Show options' above By public transport in blue - here you can change the date and time of your arrival or departure time and it will sort out all your walking time, connections times etc.

Happy navigating.
And no, I don't work in Google.
