Hi there- we are staying near Zurich airport at the Hilton the night before we leave Switzerland - the prior 5-6 days will have been spent in the Bernese Oberland area with a base in Wengen. I originally booked the hotel in March and got a pretty reasonable rate. I was thinking about switching to a hotel in Zurich downtown so we can explore the city on the last day, but they have become so expensive! I am wondering if it makes more sense to keep the hotel near Zurich airport and just take the train into downtown Zurich to explore during our last day. We will have the half fare card. Also, I had a question about traveling from the Hilton to Zurich airport the last day. There is a shuttle available for 5 CHF, but it also looks like we could walk to the Kloten Balsberg station and take the train or bus to the Zurich airport (which would cost less given we have the half fare card). Are my plans feasible, or should I keep looking for a hotel in Zurich downtown? Thanks for the help!
