Wheelchair users & mobility impaired people

Even though Zermatt is a mountain village where it sometimes goes steep up and down, disabled visitors in wheelchairs can also enjoy a stay in the Matterhorn village. We ensure that they can move around the village. They also have no problem getting to the viewing locations, where they can see the most beautiful mountains in the alps including the Matterhorn and 37 other four thousand-metre peaks.

Getting around the village

Disabled visitors can travel around the village by taxi or using the public bus. The bus drivers are more than happy to help you get on and off the bus safely. If you contact taxi companies in advance, they will arrange suitable transportation for you, and will happily provide further help if required.

All gondolas and trains are wheel-chair accessible

There is wheelchair access for visitors to the Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn (Matterhorn glacier paradise) viewing platforms. Disabled visitors can also travel up to the Rothorn using the cable car. Once you arrive on the Rothorn, however, there are no routes which are wheelchair-accessible, but you can enjoy the views from the station

Toilets in the village and the mountains

There are disabled toilets at Zermatt and Täsch train stations. Up in the mountains, there are disabled toilets at the Blauherd station, in the Kulmhotel Gornergrat, in the Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant and on Trockener Steg.
