Visit Zurich: 10-Hour Layover in Zurich

We had a 10-hour layover in Zurich, and we weren't about to waste our time waiting at the airport.  We made plans to eat and look for chocolate.  

The first step was to find the luggage storage lockers so we could store our carryons while we explored the city.  

It took us a while to find the lockers (we found some in the airport shopping lobby, top floor).  There are several large lockers big enough to hold a rolling carryon + bags and backpacks (we had to get change from customer service to pay for the lockers).

Once we found the lockers (it took us 30 minutes from the time we arrived in Zurich), the next step was to figure out how to get train tickets. 
We eventually found the kiosks to buy the tickets.  We ended up buying a daypass, thinking it would save us money, but it didn't, since we only stopped at one place before we headed back to the airport.  

In any case, with tickets in hand, we then had to figure out how to navigate the train system.
After searching Google maps and downloading the ZVV app, we finally made it on the train (another 30 minutes later).
Zurich was magical!  We got off at the Zurich HB station and walked along the Limmat River, and explored the cobblestone streets.

It is such a charming area, with restaurants lined up and down (people were already drinking from 10am), and so many cute shops.
The Limmat River views were just the prettiest.

There were picturesque views everywhere!

We ended up going back to the airport after just 6 hours, as we were extremely tired after having gotten off a 10-hour flight from Newark, but the 6 hours were well spent in Zurich!
