Very busy place that serves as the main train station and under the station a large shopping mall.

Very clean with lots of things to do, great food options as well for the train trip or breakfast, lunch or dinner if close by, I had my morning breakfast their always at a good price.

Very well organized system. Big shopping mall also. Take your time here, because it is huge. It will take time to find where you have to find your train.

It being Switzerland’s largest and busiest was obvious on our early morning arrival. Bustling with arrivals, departures and passengers over a few levels, it's easy to see why it is one of Europe's busiest.

Dating from 1871, the exterior was in the midst of a major renovation with much hoarding and builders’ paraphernalia surrounding it. So unfortunately wasn’t possible to completely take in the purported grandeur of the exterior design.

Nice station with many shops and restaurants. Trams to many destinations in the city are just out front. There's also a small, but quieter waiting room on the level below the main level near the restrooms and luggage storage.

There are lockers for luggage storage. They take cards for payment and give you a receipt with a QR code instead of a bulky key. You pay the minimum amount up front, then when you return if there's a balance due, you pay the rest

This is a very modern train station, and we took a train from here. Trains arrive from and travel to many areas in Switzerland and throughout Europe.

Although there was scaffolding on the exterior, this is still a unique structure with lots of shops and train lines. Practically everyone will end up here at one time or another to take a train.

This is the main train station In Zurich. Over 3000 arrivals and departures per day. A very busy place but extremely important. Firstly a few things to note -
Most store’s name restaurants Close early - not at the train station. Also you have a wide variety of restaurants and shops. In addition there are facilities like lockers
( that you can rent ) showers and restrooms ( you have to pay - yes pay to use these facilities). Also it’s close to the city center so a good starting point for any sightseeing or tours etc. We flew into Zurich airport got a ride to the station - stored our luggage and then did a city tour - which started at the bus station, walking distance from here.

The Zurich Hauptbahnhof, or the main railway station is the biggest one in all of Switzerland with connections to entire country and abroad. Like all other stations it is in the very center, and in front of it you can catch buses or trams to every part of Zurich.

There are so many shops at the train station, there is even a food Park. It's nice and clean and can walk for ages looking around the shops and places to eat and drink

We drove into Zurich mid-morning, dropped off our rental car, and had a taxi take us to our hotel which was near Zurich HB. I noticed the building as we drove by but didn’t realize it was the railway station. Since we were flying out the next morning, as soon as we got checked-in, we left for a quick tour of the city and Lake Zurich. That night after dinner, I went out walking around exploring the area and discovered the Hauptbahnhof (HB) Railroad Station, the largest railway station in Switzerland. This huge, mostly underground station has multiple floors containing a large retail shopping mall. It was a cool and unique place, I enjoyed wandering around for a while.
