Zermatt is car-free. Therefore, it makes the most sense to travel there by train. Comfortably and stress-free. The final destination: Bahnhofplatz Zermatt.


Arriving by train is convenient. And, the train trip is beautiful, because it goes through the deepest cleft valley in Switzerland. Left and right are the highest mountains in Switzerland, including the Täschhorn, Dom and Weisshorn.
