Introduction

These pages will supply information about the cities the Stones will be visiting this summer. To read about each individual city please select the actual city link in the IORR travel guide pages. If you have information for these pages please send e-mail to [email protected].

Nearest big city

Zürich

How to get to the city

You can get easy access from the Airport to Zürich downtown by the Swiss Railway www.sbb.ch.

Tickets

How to get to the venue

Trains will depart from Dübendorf Station every 6 minutes till 1.30 a.m. The area will be open for DJ Music, eating and drinking till 2.00 a.m. They want to avoid that too many fans depart the same time (and making money of course). After party could happen there or near to main station Zurich, the old town would not be far away.

Travel information

Venue maps

Recommended hotels

Besides the Ibis in Oerlikon there is also Ibis, Etap & Novotel in the quarter "Zürich West" which is near to the train station Bahnhof Hardbrücke. This train station is directly connected to the airport, the main station and the station "Dübendorf". Would be good for people from abroad which have to fly in. The recommended city of Rapperswil is beautiful. But it will be hard to come back there after the concert. Ok if you go quick to the Dübendorf station, back to Zurich main station and changing trains quickly it's probably possible. Otherwise by taxi it's not affordable at all.

www.zuerich.com will give you an idea about hotels. if you would like to stay out of town a nice place is www.rapperswil.ch. It's about half an hour ride with S5 from zurich main station.

cheaphotels: look at www.accor.com for Formule one and IBIS. There are located near Oerlikon. Yes we do have also a McDonaldsHotel in Zurich (and one in Estavayer-le-lac) which is unique in the world. www.hotels4you.ch is also a good thing to get idea of the hotels.

Meeting place for fans

In case of rain:
"Imagine" at main station and "News Bar" (Bahnhofplatz 2) right opposite the main entrance of the main station, over the place.

In case of a sunny day:
"Bauschänzli" (Stadthausquai 13) from main station walk along the river Limmat in direction to the lake of Zurich. This restaurant is placed on a "half-island" in the river Limmat. You can see this place right before the last bridge over the river before the lake. Everybody in Zurich knows this place. If somebody has to ask that would be not problem at all. It's kind of a "Biergarten". People can eat but don't have to eat there. They can choose self service or served (a little bit finer dining in served area).

DAY OF CONCERT:
Also "News Bar" as meeting point or "Imagine" or "Federal".

Recommended bars/restaurants

Restaurants in the old town: "Johanniter" (Niederdorfstr. 70) Bluetige Duume Rheinfelder Bierhaus (Marktgasse 19)

Bars in the old town: Züri Bar (Niederdorfstr. 24) (sometimes cool music)
