The Zurich Chocolate Tram
Back in Zurich From 4th – 20th November 2022!!!
The Schoggi Tram in Zurich by Honold 2022
Award-wining Chocolatier Honold which has premises in Rennweg, Enge, Witikon, Zürichberg and Küsnacht, is running its famous “Schoggi Tram” or “Chocolate tram” once again for 2022!
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 their delicious hand made chocolates and a “Pain de Gênes” speciality cake.
The Chocolate tram rides are very popular so you do need to make your booking in advance. Unfortunately with a deal as good as this, which only happens once a year, demand often 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.
The Schoggi tram will be running from 4th – 20th November and you can book your tickets online on Honold’s website.
The Honold Schoggi Tram is popular with people of all ages and is the perfect way to brighten anyone’s day! So don’t delay – book your Chocolate Tram tickets today!

Tickets: Tickets can be purchased online
Prices: Adults CHF 20, Children up to 16 years CHF 10 and under twos are free
Departure Point: Tram Stop at Bellevue
Tour: The tram departs Bellevue and travels towards Central, on to Paradeplatz, Bahnhofstrasse, towards the lake, along the General-Guisan-Quai to Bahnhof Enge, back to Paradeplatz and via Bürkliplatz to Bellevue. All in all it is about 30minutes. 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.

DIY Chocolate Tram Suggestion
If you aren’t able to enjoy a ride on the Schoggi Tram, why not take a regular tram to Confiserie Honold in Rennweg 53 and pop in with a friend to pick up a couple of hot chocolates and a selection of pralinés and truffles (do check out the new and fantastic tasting unique Grand Cru Chakra Couverture) and a Pain de Gene to take away? Next catch a tram maybe the 8, 15, or 6 – or maybe one you have never taken before – and just go for a ride to enjoy your chocolate goodies? It won’t be the same as taking the vintage Schoggi Tram – but it will still be a wonderful experience!

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!
