The various trams are signaled everywhere in Zurich main station. Please look for tram number 4.
From the main hall of the main station you walk to the end of the hall until you leave it, cross the street and you reach the tram platform. Take the Tram 4 in direction "Tiefenbrunnen" and exit at the tram station "Höschgasse".
From there turn left into "Höschgasse" and follow it until you reach the next traffic light. At the traffic lights turn right into "Zollikerstrasse" and 50 meters later you will see the entrance of the Botanical Garden on the left side.
