How to switch back to local from fullscreen mode in Remote Desktop?

Is there some nice Keyboard Shortcut to to switch back to the local computer (the one I sit in front of) from fullscreen mode in a Remote Desktop Connection?
Or a tool which I can use from a shortcut on the Remote Computer?
Only thing I know so far is Ctrl-Alt-Delete -> Taskmanger -> Swich to

I know there is a option to keep Keyboard Shortcuts like Alt-Tab local but I want them to aply to the remote computer because I usually use it some hours in a row, but from time to time I still want to do something on the local computer.

Hmmm... may have misunderstood your question.

CTRL-ALT-BREAK switches from full screen Remote Desktop to a windows view of the remote desktop.  If you are looking to be able to essentially "ALT-TAB" your way back to the local computer, you can control the ALT-TAB functionality from the XP/2K3 RDP client (downloadable to 2K and other OSes from Microsoft with the link I provide below), by selecting the options button and then the Local Resources tab and Keyboard are of that tab.

Cool, thanks a lot. I tried several shortcuts but none worked but I found out this way that Win-Break gives me the System Properties. ;-)
