Lovers of Swiss cuisine will find the Wirtschaft and Brasserie zum Vorbahnhof directly opposite Zurich’s Main Train Station. The restaurant serves hearty Swiss fare, such as Zürcher Geschnetzeltes, rösti hash brown potatoes, cheese fondue, and “Hackets mit Hörnli” – minced beef with horn-shaped pasta, which in Switzerland is traditionally served with apple purée.
The Brasserie zum Vorbahnhof has plenty of room for guests both in the cozy interior and outside on the large terrace. It is a popular haunt among travelers heading to the station to catch a train, friends meeting up after work, and tourists wishing to take a short break from exploring the city.
The restaurant enjoys a very central location between Zurich Main Train Station, the coach car park, and the National Museum.
