I debated buying this card and I am so glad that I did. I picked up my Zurich card at the airport office (which was easy to find) and used it for transportation into Zurich. We walk a lot so we didn’t use the trams much but we still got value through the entry fees that were waived by the card. The Beyer watch museum alone was asking others to pay 20 CHF for this small (yet interesting) museum. Glad we bought this card.

We bought the card for 72 hours and it was worth it just for using public transport. In addition, the free lake tour, that was really nice. The discounts worked without any problems at the places where we were. The only deduction for the inaccurate description in the flyer and the stand for the bus tour was no longer there. But I would buy the card again. Picking you up at the airport works great too!

Již první den se nám karta zaplatila. Prohlédli jsme si město i z lodě, tramvaje i lanovky. Hned první jízdu tramvají nás kontroloval revizor a ten den ještě dvakrát. Jezero jsme prokřižovali několikrát. Jen jsme třeba poodjeli a vykoupali jsme se na další pláži. Suvenýry, kávu i snack jsme měli se slevou.
