Meeting place Zurich HB (main station)
Swiss Train Rally 

Contact: Nathalie and Joël


Have you ever felt like doing something but didn't quite know what to do? Have you already crossed all the beautiful sites you wanted to visit in Switzerland from your bucket list? Don't worry, we got you covered. This event will bring you to 3 to 4 different cities in Switzerland, so chances are you'll find some new cool gems all over the country.

But which cities are we going to visit? Well, that's the catch: You won't know it. To be honest, we won't even know until the very few days before the event either. It will be a surprise for all of us. We'll divide all participants into different teams and each team will experience a somewhat different day. There will be some challenges throughout the day for us to solve on our journey.

But we haven't told you the best yet: This is a national event, which means that we will be meeting other teams from other ESN sections. We might even have the chance to do some fun challenges against other ESN sections.

To further strengthen the bounds to the other sections and celebrate with the people you met during the day, ESN organized a party in the final city. You'll have free and early entry as well as shots for 1.- for all participants.

To organize this event, we need some additional, important information. Please make sure to fill out this Google Form asap after your registration :)

Entrance / Fee Comment

The price includes the train ticket as well as free early entrance to the party.

If you have a GA/full fare you can join for free. However, please email us directly after your registration so we can finalize your registration. Otherwise, the system will cancel your reservation after the payment deadline.

Owning a “Halbtax” or “Gleis 7” does not offer any additional discount.

Paid tickets are only available for people younger than 25. I.e. you must be born after the 13.05.1998.
If you're older and still wish to participate you can do so by organising and buying a day ticket by yourself (e.g. a 
Saver Day PassDay Passes offered by communities, GA or other offers).  Note that it needs to be valid for all the trains in Switzerland on the date of the event. Of course, if you choose this option, you don't need to pay on our website, but we still need you to register. Just write us an Email afterwards so we can finalize your booking. If you have trouble, let us know. 
Alternatively, we will sell a very limited amount of tickets to people older than 25 on a separate registration page which will open up closer to the event (we will publish it). Spots will be VERY limited and it will be first come first serve.

Also, note that the meeting time might be a bit flexible, i.e. we won't be meeting all at 7. Similarly, the end time is not yet fixed. Chances are that we will be back in Zürich before 23:55.
