All of the airport’s parking facilities are open 24 hours a day, however pre-booked reservations are not currently possible. Simply turn up and park.
A range of great connections ensure getting to the city centre is simple and hassle-free. Onward travel further afield, including internationally, is also possible due to the city's central European location.
The airport's railway station is accessible via the S-Bahn Zurich on lines S2 and S16 and the Glattalbahn Zurich tram on routes 10 and 12 into the city and surrounding areas. There are also direct services operated by InterRegio and Intercity to further afield destinations like Basel and Lucerne. Eurocity also operates a route to Munich, Germany.

If you are staying in a local hotel, it may be worth checking if they offer an airport transfer shuttle service. Many of the tourist accommodations in the city either have their own shuttle service or they can book you on to a shared service for door-to-door transfers. Ask at your hotel for further information.
Taxi operators are located outside of Arrivals terminals 1 and 2, if this is your preferred choice of transport for factors of ease but not cost. An average fare from Zurich Airport to the city centre is CHF 60 (€40).
If you're planning to explore further afield in Switzerland or beyond, this may be a preferable option. You can either rent a car on arrival or prior to travel.
