You can enjoy a relaxed journey by travelling with ZVV public transport. Regular trains run on lines 41 and 42 from Zurich Hauptbahnhof to Hardbrücke S-Bahn station (only one stop away from the Hauptbahnhof). Buses 33 and 72 also stop at Hardbrücke station. From there you can walk to Lichtahlle MAAG in just three minutes. Alternatively, take tram number 4 to Schiffbau station and walk from there (also just three minutes) or arrive directly with the tram 8 at Hardturm station.

Alternatively, you can park at the Renaissance Hotel or in the Prime Tower car park (open from 6 p.m. during the week). There are two disabled parking spaces right in front of the MAAG Halle which are not reserved and can be used subject to availability.
