If you have a Swiss Travel Pass, you don't need a ticket. The pass is your ticket.

Boats depart from Bürkliplatz. Google Maps will show you where it is. You can walk there from Zürich Hauptbanhof (main station) in about 20 minutes, or get Tram 11 (direction: Bürkliplatz) from the tram stop in the Bahnhofstrasse opposite Zürich Hauptbahnhof.

Timetables and other information are here:

Hi Ankit,

Well, there is a lot to do but you may not be interested in all of it :-) Apart from a boat trip, there are plenty of museums, you could do a city walk, visit Üetliberg for a good viewing point. You'll find various suggestions on our Zurich page: www.myswissalps.com/zu rich.

Thanks Arno.

how to reach Üetliberg for a good viewing point ?

I checked and found direct train from zurich HB to Üetliberg.

From Üetliberg what i need to take to get bird view of zurich... do we have any cable car ?

Since i have STP, will there be any charges for it ?

Once you take the train to Üetliberg you have about a 10 minute walk to the very top of the mountain and you'll have views over Zurich from there (and walking trails and restaurants are there as well).

It is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass yes. https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ validity
