I have 2 possible travel plans from Zurich flughafen to St. Moritz and I am still struggling to decide which will be easier! We land at 11.30 a.m. and will make time for brief lunch break before continuing on our journey so I have researched trains leaving Zurich Flughafen after 13. 00 p.m.
Alternative 1. Depart ZF at 13.18 and arrive Zurich HBF at 13.27 on platform 32, depart from 11 at 13.37 to Chur. Arrive Chur on 9 at 14.52, depart Chur at 14.58 from platform 10, arrive St. Moritz at 17.03.
Alternative 2. Depart ZF at 13.47, arrive Zurich HBF at 13.59 on platform 5, departing from 10 at 14.07 to Landquart. Arrive Landquart on platform 2 at 15.11, depart Landquart at 15.20 from platform 8, arrive St. Moritz at 17.09.
Changing trains in Chur in alternative 1 will be very easy even with our large suitcases as the platforms are next to each other. However I am worried about the change in Zurich HBF for this alternative as platform 32 is at the lower level and looking at the station plan it seems a long way to reach platform 11.
The platform change in Zurich HBF is easier in alternative 2, from 5 to 10 which is not far and there are lifts to help with luggage or we can walk to railhead and along as I remember it but the change in Landquart is from 2 to 8 in 9 minutes and there is no map of the station for me to check for lifts to use.
So my questions are: does anyone have recent experience of changing levels at Zurich HBF? (we have changed trains there many times but not at different levels) or know anything about Landquart station and whether there are any lifts?
