Zurich Airport itself good but be careful when you ride on the train from Zurich Flughafen(airport) to other Swiss City in late night.

There are some weirdos.
Zurich is different from other Swiss City.


Also be careful when you are going to Zurich Flughafen station from other swiss city,
its because they reached to the Zurich Main station first and then the train goes reverse direction to arrive in airport. But they do not have announce of the arrival.
People usually confused without announcement.

Is this a tram...? I guess it's some kind of inter-terminal passenger mover... thing. Or is it an actual tram to Zurich? I hadn't realised there was a tram line going there as well as the train lines.

Yes, since December 2008 there is the Tram Line 10 from the City to the Airport.

www.thecircle.ch

A Japanese team of star architects – Riken Yamamoto & Field Shop – is the winner of the architectural competition launched by Flughafen Zürich AG for «The Circle». The project involves an upscale complex for innovative services within walking distance of the terminals.

One year after the kickoff of the international architectural competition for «The Circle», the winner has been announced. Riken Yamamoto & Field Shop, a Japanese architectural firm, was selected by a jury from over 90 high-calibre entries from twelve countries. This announcement ends the competition. As the next step, the draft will be further refined within the scope of a preliminary study to address the specific requirements of the owner. Subject to compliance with the specifications regarding cost-effectiveness, gestalt, and functionality, construction is scheduled to begin in 2012.

Swiss understatement
Thanks to the eloquence of its compact urban format, the proposal submitted by Riken Yamamoto & Field Shop is characterised primarily by Swiss understatement and high atmospheric quality. The concept allows tenants to present themselves with individual addresses in an expansive building complex. Additionally, the draft affords considerable flexibility with respect to configurability across the life span of the buildings.

The images show the current status, not the final project as it will likely be implemented later.

Very nice airport. Been there once, I loved how it was very quiet and clean. Beautiful but very understated architecture too!
