Arriving by plane, you will most likely land at Zurich Airport, which is located less than 10 kilometers northeast of the city center. Our Sixt office is strategically located at the parking area, close to the airport exit, which means you will be on your way to the historic city core before you know it. The A1L motorway will take you downtown in less than 15 minutes.
For those looking to explore the rest of this stunning country, why not rent a car in Zurich and take the A1 west towards Bern and Geneva or eastwards towards St. Gallen. The A4 northwards will lead you to Schaffhausen and southwards to Altdorf, and the A3 northwest towards Basel and southeast along Lake Zürich and Lake Walen. Driving is the best way to discover and enjoy the scenery of the breathtaking countryside, especially with such outstanding roads present.
Our Zurich Hardbrücke car rental branch is located in the western part of the city, a former industrial area now turned into a trendy neighborhood. One stop away from Zurich's main train station, it can be reached by taxi or simply hop off at the Hardbrücke stop for a short walk.
Parking in Zurich is relatively easy, as long as you stick to the rules. Parking is generally permitted only on marked parking places. White zone spots with parking meters are for short stays only and are limited from 30 minutes to 2 or 4 hours. Parking cards for parking in blue zones can only be obtained at www.parkkarten.ch. However, the most convenient option is to simply park your rental vehicle in one of the 10 park-houses. Up-to-date signalization boards at traffic junctions show the number of vacant parking places and the way to the park-houses. And if you're visiting late, parking between 9.00 pm and 8.00 am is practically free of charge everywhere on-street.
