If my memory serves me correctly there are a number of parking spaces in the square just outside corizon. Getting one is likely to be fight though, and I've no idea how much it would cost to park there.

No idea about alternatives as I don't drive that often.

There is an open Parking at Hirschengraben (from Central direction to Kunsthaus, near Tramstop Neumarkt). If there is no space go to Parkhaus Hohe Promenade (just follow Hirschengraben to Rämistrasse).

Otherwise use Parkhaus Urania and cross the river to Niederdorf. It's only 5min walk.

Re: Drinks evening (with founder of The Local)

I will be about an hour late becuse I have to work until 6. Is there a tram from the station that goes close to where the bar is?
Last time I went to the Talacker I was looking for the trams all over the place and it turned out they don't run from the main station.....

Trams to Talacker? They run down Bahnhofstrasse a plenty and then there's a 4 minute walk to the bar.

For the Corazon it's just behind Central, or a 10 minute walk from HB.

Sorry for not replying sooner. Limited internet access.

Anyway, no specific plans for this evening. I'll be there as long as there are questions to be answered or pleasant conversations to be had!

Looking forward to seeing you later.

That would be a significant increase in remuneration.
