Bern to Etzelkofen

Trying to get from Zurich to Bern to Etzelkofen. The train will take me to Bern but is there transportation to Etzelkofen? Thanks

Hi, you can get all the train and bus timetables on the Swiss Rail website (they have an integrated public transportation system that is just wonderful) by putting in Zurich HB for the departure and Etzelkofen for the destination. Etzelkofen pulls up a lot of choices so just use the first one for your planning and, just to be sure, check with Swiss Rail when you get to Zurich. They will provide a specific timetable for you quite happily. The buses and trains are all integrated to run in conjunction so you don't usually have to wait at all to catch a bus.

It looks like you take a train to Bern, then another local train to Jegenstorf where you catch the bus to Etzelkofen. The walks shown on the timetable are usually just from the intercity/international train station to the local train station which is usually part of the same building or just across the street and then from the station to the bus stop outside the station.

Hope this helps.

there are actually two bus stops in Etzelkofen - "Ober" and "Dorf". Best to know which one you need to get off at....

Inter-City train Zurich to Bern, then regional train for one stop to Jegenstorf and connecting bus...

Happy New Year! I can't believe it finally got here!!
