If you are headed to Lake Lucerne stay left on A51 and merge onto the A4. Switzerland has excellent roads but be aware they have strict traffic laws against speeding and drinking-driving.

    Train, Boat and Tram
    Switzerland has an integrated ticketing system for all their public transport (ZVV) and even offers a 'special' for tourists which includes Zurich and its surrounding area with a free entrance to museums for either 24 or 72 hours. This public transport includes a boat bus on the Limmet River into Zurich Lake and several lake steamers which leave from Burkliplatz.

    The train station is located on the lowest level of the airport shopping centre and you can buy tickets here.
