>> I have to visit "Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, Schweiz, Langhaldenstrasse 21, 8803 Rüschlikon, Switzerland" on 17th September morning from my Hotel, "Hotel Welcome Inn, Kloten"
Are there direct trains/trams available to the institute from the hotel?
If Not, appreiciate if you could help me out with the directions and the mode of transport I should use.
There are no direct trains or trams from your hotel to the Institute.
You can use the journey planner at the following link to plan your journey:
I have done a journey plan for you with the following parameters:
- The "from", "to" information you provided
- An arrival at your destination between 8am and 9am on 17 September 2016
- I have filtered the results for a maximum walk of 1 km
It is attached as a PDF. If you want to plan the journey with different parameters, you can do that at the above link. You can also see on a map how to get from your hotel to Kloten S-Bahn station as well as how to find your connecting buses and how to reach the Institute from Rüschlikon S-Bahn station or "Rüschlikon, Park im Grüene" bus stop at the other end. Zoom in for better detail.
Some terms in the journey plan:
S-Bahn - train
Niederflurbus - low-floor bus
The Institute's website also has some instructions for getting there:
As your Swiss Travel Pass is not valid on 17 September, you will need to get a ticket for this trip (and presumably for the return trip). You will need a ticket for 4 Zones: Zones 110 (which counts as 2 zones), 121 and 150.
A map of the zone network is here:
If a return trip to the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute will be your only travel for the day, a quick look at the ticket options suggests that the best ticket would be a Day Pass for 4 zones. This is valid for 24 hours and costs CHF 17,20. However, you should check the options yourself at the following link/s:

Hope this helps.
PS The attachment has an incorrect spelling for Rüschlikon, but I can't change it, sorry!
