127. Central

The one in Central, in one of the most important junctions in town, a few hundred meters away from the Hauptbahnhof. Central used to called Leonhardplatz, after the St. Leonhard chapel. It was not until 1883, when the Central Hotel was built in the former number 1  of Leonhardplatz, that this place start to be known as Central, Wikipedia dixit. Next to it, the Polybahnh, a very handy funicular, loved alike by tourists and University staff.
