" and then buy a ticket at the change station at swiss border, for upto Zurich.? "

Would be a waste of time, with up to 6 train changes,

Just buy a savings fare ('sparpreis'), 3rd June cheapest is €54.90 with 2 changes

" use Leander tickets "

The border is not in the same state as Hanau, therefore if you want a slow train, you can only use this ticket

Keep it simple. It's just like booking a flight.

Go to German Railways www.bahn.de/en

Enter Hanau Hbf to Zurich.

Oh look, cheap prices on this train, that train, another train. Kids under 15 free with an adult using a Sparpreis.

Click, click, book!

Brrrr... [sound of your own printer printing your ticket]

Job done!

And remember, also just like flights, cheap if you book in advance with a cheap sparpreis fare, expensive if you just turn up and pay full whack full-flex standard price.
