Exploring Zurich
By Public Transit

RUTH ROVNER SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

O

n the lower level of

Zurich's large and bust-
ling train station, the
S-10 train is waiting to
depart from Track 1. It's a
cheerful, almost cozy-looking
train, painted bright orange and
red, with comfortable seats to
match the decor.
Precisely on the minute — for
this is Switzerland, where even
local trains run with Swiss-
watch precision — the train
pulls out.
Then, out from the under-
ground, it starts chugging
steadily uphill. As we climb
higher, the scenery starts to
change, with views of moun-
tains, lush greenery and giant
sunflowers.
We climb steadily higher,
stopping at small stations along
the way. The picture windows
are half-open, and the air from
this height is fragrant and brac-
ing.
When we reach the final stop,
the station looks like a Swiss
chalet, and it's even decked with
flowers. It's taken us a mere 15
minutes to reach Uetliberg,
sometimes known as "the top of
Zurich" — in fact, as a sign tells
us, we're now 2671 feet high.
We've come to this height
aboard an efficient local train
that daily transports Zurichers
up and down the hills.
Savvy tourists, of course, can
come along, too. Indeed, one of
the many pleasures of this
scenic city of lakes, a river and
mountains is that its extensive
network of public transit facil-
ities — including trams, trains,
and boats reach many scenic
spots.
In fact, the S-10 is such an at-
traction that the city's tourist
office even has a colorful pam-
phlet complete with the S-10
train route and a description of

suggested walks from Uetlil-
berg, including a panoramic
two-hour promenade leading to
Felsenegg, where walkers can
then enjoy a cable car ride
down to a lower stop, Adsiwil.
Although I didn't have time
for the walk on the day I rode
to the top of Zurich, I found am-
ple panoramic vistas as I wan-
dered the wide, gravel walking
trail from the train station.
At one juncture, between the
trees, I caught a glimpse of
Lake Zurich far below. Further
along, I came to a clearing with
benches, slides for youngsters,
even a lookout tower to enjoy
the sweeping view.
Then, back at the station, the
S-10 was ready and waiting: It
departs reliably every half hour.
The descent was as enjoyable
as the ascent, with the train
whistle screeching as we round-
ed the curves. Along the way,
there were close-up views of
dense, tall trees and houses on
the hills, and then the buildings
looming larger as we ap-
proached the station.
I was almost sorry to get off
the train — except that there
were still many other public
transit pleasures to be sampled
— for instance, the one and half
boat cruise on Lake Zurich,
which is used not only by
tourists but by commuters who
jump aboard to get from one
point to another in their lake-
side city.
Conveniently, the boarding
point was right at the end of
Zurich's main shopping street,
the Banhhofstrasse, which
opens onto the lake. Along the
lakeside quay, where the boat
was waiting, people were stroll-
ing, admiring the view or stop-
ping to watch the graceful
swans on the lake.
On board, the passengers
