The ride is modern and clean, and doesn't cost anything if you already have the ticket for zone 110. No waiting, and photo ops at the top. Why not?
I like to travel on funiculars and this is worth a trip. Although the trip only takes about 3 minutes it is a good way to get to the university and there is a good view once you get there.
This is a great little nostalgic tram that will take you from the Limmattquai up a hill really close to ETH and the University of Zurich.

The weirdest of all public transport methods. Takes you from near the river up to the university. Worth going up for a nice view of Zurich
It is one of the shortest funicular rides but it is great experience for kids. It is in included in zone 110 tickets and takes only a couple of minutes. Recommended for kids of all ages. It is opposite the central station tram stop.
