Eating with all the senses: the VBZ Gourmet Line
Please jump on board and take your seat! The VBZ Gourmet Line brings a breath of fresh air to Zurich – and we don't just mean the breeze as you pass by. Our breeze carries with it surprising aromas, borne through Zurich on a vintage tram.
Traditions should be preserved. In autumn, the VBZ Gourmet Line will resume activity with the Ticino tram and COVID-safe measures. Treat yourself to a menu that pours sunshine into your soul and onto your plate, accompanied by the sights of beautiful Zurich, with a touch of Ticino in the air.

Honold Chocolate Tram 2021/2022
Unfortunately the Honold Chocolate Tram could not run in 2020. We hope that the Honold Chocolate Tram will once again run through the beautiful city of Zurich from November 2021.
As Zurich is slowly transformed into a fairy tale backdrop with the onset of winter, Confiserie Honold will be serving hot chocolate and hand-made treats in the homely chocolate tram. Enjoy French almond cake, baked according to great-grandfather's recipe, and exquisite chocolate creations. To get yourself in the mood, why not remind yourself of what you can look forward to – take a look at the gallery of wonderful photos from previous years on the Confiserie Honold AG website.

VBZ Gourmet Line
The journey in the vintage tram travels through the city centre, past the most beautiful squares in Zurich. You will see the chic Bahnhofstrasse, catch a view of the lake from the Quaibrücke and admire the traditional houses along the Limmatquai. In addition, we will also travel through Seefeld, for example, to Tiefenbrunnen railway station, up to Römerhof or to Wollishofen and also into the fashionable area of Zurich-West.
Zurich's yummy tram can be used by groups throughout the year. The menu offers more choice than there are stops along the route. Let us tempt you with our suggestions and then simply contact us. We will be delighted to advise you.
