Arrival at the airport (Zurich Kloten)
After reclaiming baggage, follow the signs "Bahn/Railway" to ticket counters and machines. There are English instructions on the machine; follow them or simply press the left (red) key at the bottom where it says "Zurich City". The machine accepts coins as well as banknotes and gives change. The ticket is valid during the next 2 hours for any train to Zurich as well as for the trams and buses in the city (streetcar, Strassenbahn). Take an escalator down to the platforms 3 or 4. Trains to city centre leave approx. every 10 minutes and take about 10 minutes to reach main station (main station or Zurich HB).
If you plan to stay the whole day, a day ticket (valid 24 hours) is more suitable.
Arrival at Zurich Main Station (Hauptbahnhof)
At the main station walk to the head of the train and follow any signs to "Bahnhofstrasse", where you can take tram 6 or 10.
