I am visiting Zermatt next week using my swisspass and would like to ask a few questions :

1) Travelling from Zurich HB to Zermatt. Do I need to change train in between and at where is the change.
Which train station should I stop upon arrival at Zermatt. I have booked a room at Le Petit Hotel.

2) I want to visit "The Matterhorn". Understand this is different from "Matterhorn Glacier Paradise" which is more
man-made. Is there any costs for going up "The Matterhorn" as I know there is a charge for Glacier Paradise.
Is the cable car station for going up "The Matterhorn" the same as Glacier Paradise. What is the cable car
frequency for "The Matterhorn".

Hi mel99! There's only one train station in Zermatt. You can look up the route to your hotel at an online map like map.search.ch. The trip from Zurich requires one change of trains in Visp. All details are in the timetable.

You can't get up the Matterhorn itself. You can indeed get rather close to it and have good views from Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Other viewing points with good views are Sunnegga/Rothorn and Gornergrat. This map at Zermatt Tourism will be helpful. All trips are discounted with your Swiss Pass.

Hi Annika,

Thank you very much for the clear explanation. One last question. For each of the trip up to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise and Gornergrat, how long will each take for a return trip back to the town at Zermatt.

Hello Mel99. Zermatt-Gornergrat is about 40 minutes for a single trip, Zermatt-Klein Matterhorn about 50 minutes. These trips too can be found in the timetable.
