Winterthur Seen railway station (German: Bahnhof Winterthur Seen) is a railway station that serves Seen, which is district number 3 in Winterthur, a city in the canton of Zurich, Switzerland. It forms part of the Tösstalbahn section between Winterthur Grüze and Bauma.[1][2]

Location[edit]

Situated at the north eastern edge of central Seen, the station borders the quarter of Sonnenberg, on the other side of the tracks.
