Plenty of eateries if you are hungry/thirsty waiting on a train, tram or bus. Clean. Safe. We in no way felt in danger at any time of the day or night, unlike in other major cities.

The station has a spacious setup and some nice architecture (e.g. the black doors with circles). There are many shops and restaurants around, so convenient for quick meetups or coffees on-the-go. The station has clear indications for trains, trams and buses.

It's a good sized train station in Switzerland so what do you expect? Organized, clean, busy with trains that are of course on time!

I found this a bit confusing to be honest. Brutalist functional architecture and not of much interest to this traveller other than as a means to an end
