    Arrive Zurich

    Landing at Zurich

    Favorite thing: Picture of Lufthansa flight coming in for a landing at Zurich airport. Smooth landing and you move quickly through the airport to collect your luggage.

    A train takes you into Zurich, I think the third-fourth stop is the center of the city.

    TIP: Make sure they stamp your passport. When I arrived I was told that I didn't need a stamp. Upon exit of Switzerland, through Geneva, the airport Security was very curious as to how or why I didn't receive a stamp on entrance to the country. I'm not sure if it's necessary or not but it resulted in me getting a strip search. They eventually let me through with no problems and I got a chuckle out of it once my plane was in the air. Even just for souvenier purposes, get a stamp.

    arrival floor

    Favorite thing: After the passport control, you follow the signs for baggage claim and then reach the baggage claim area..

    For the first time in my life, surprisingly my baggage was the first item that has come on the band.. :)) Yuppii

    After grapping the baggages, I continued downstairs for the train.. the first floor down is the place where you can get your tickets.. Ticket system is just similar than its in Holland and Germany.. You can have your ticket from the machines, just by pressing the code number of your desired destination...

    If you dont have change money for the machines just behind them are the offices for ticket sales, you can use them also.. And Down that floor is the Train departures.. There are two lines, so ask your destination.. The train to main train station (Zurich Hauptbahnhof) leaves almost in every ten minutes.. Ticket cost one way 5,40 CHF

    Arriving Zurich

    Zurich from Plane

    Favorite thing: Zurich airport is just 10-15 min outside of Zurich... When you are arriving by plane you will start seeing the nice small swiss houses... And in between forests you will land to zurich airport..

    Zurich airport has three terminals.. The terminal A & B are to the center of the airport and the terminal E is a bit distance from the airport center..

    If your flight is also landing to terminal E, like mine, than you shall keep on mind the followings.. The Teminal E is far from the Main terminal, so when you get out from the plane, you will follow the steps down and see a one way metro line.. Without hesitating just get on the metro... It will carry you to the main terminal, where you will have the pass control and Baggage claim.. When you reach the main terminal by metro, just go up and there you will have the pass control splitted in to two.. First is the EU, Swiss and Nefta Nationalities and the second is others..
