The Schoggi Tram in Zurich by Honold


Award-wining Chocolatier Honold which has premises in Rennweg, Zürichberg and Küsnacht, is running it’s famous “Schoggi Tram” or “Chocolate tram” again this year from Friday 1st – 10th November and from 16th – 17th November 2019.

For CHF 20 (children up to 16 years old are CHF 10 and under 2s are free) you not only do you get to tour the centre of Zurich on a beautiful vintage tram, but you also get to drink one of Honold’s specialities – their wonderful hot chocolate.  And that’s not all! You even get to taste one of their delicious hand made chocolates and a “Pain de Gênes” speciality cake.

However, demand is very high for these tram rides so you do need to make your booking in advance. Unfortunately with a deal as good as this, which only happens once a year, you do find that demand outstrips supply. All of the Chocolate Trams depart from Bellevue Tram stop and the trams run for around 30mins through the centre of Zurich at set intervals.

You can book your tickets online on Honold’s website. If you aren’t able to make the dates for the Schoggi Tram don’t forget you can always take a regular tram to Rennweg 53 and pop in for a hot chocolate at the Honold Tea Rooms.

To be sure of getting your seat promptly you need to arrive at least 5 minutes before departure. Unfortunately there is no space for prams or dogs on board. Spaces are limited and the layout is antique – so do bear in mind that you might not always be able to sit next to your friends if travelling in a group.

    Hey there!

    Love following your post. And i’m definitely on to signing up for the Schoggi tram since this is the last weekend, but just wanted to clarify, you have to buy the ticket and reserve your spot for the day on the day you want to go on it right? It’s not that I can book and reserve my ticket a day before?

      Hi Jessica Yes it’s a great little trip which takes just around 20 mins around the centre of Zurich and it has the most amazing hot chocolate on board – definitely worth a go – but get there as cloe to 1.30 as you can as the tickets sell fast at the weekend!
