Hi jana

The only economical way to go to the airport is the train. There are no steps at Lucerne and at Zurich airport to enter in the train.

Taxi is very expensive. A shuttle would cost you (propably around CHF 250 or more). I would go by train, it's easy from Lucerne - no change trains see www.sbb.ch/en -.

hi pore,

thank you for your advice.noted on the ticket fair. we will now take the train from lucerne direct to zurich airport since there will be no steps at the train.

but noted in the sbb website they advised to take the IR3154 train frm lucerne tozurich hb instead as the direct train will be crowded in the morning.

whats your advice on this? will the direct train crowd be tat bad? our pouch jus got stolen at Aigle stn during evening crowd. loss our swiss pass and some money and we got to buy another swiss pass.

thank you

I'm sorry for that Jana. I did not look what time this train leaves but I would anyway take the direct train. If you are at the railway station early enough there should be no problem to get seats. I touk these trains often from Zug and never had serious problems.

Whach your items where ever you are. Unfortunately picpockets are everywhere actually.

Have a safe trip

It's the train that leaves Luzern at 07:10.

Yes, it will be very crowded, because it will be full of people going to work in Zurich. But the train starts from Luzern so, provided you get there 15 minutes early, it will be empty when you get on.

They often add two or three extra coaches to this rush-hour train; these extra coaches are*not* flat entry.

Hi amucu

It's difficult to say if you will have flat entry in the waggons at Interlaken as they did not get all the new trains ordered until now. Once they got them, there will be nomore such problem on the fast trains (they do not run faster but stop less).
