I have purchased a 2 country Eurail Pass, which includes Switzerland. I am planning to travel to Zermatt and experience the "Matterhorn glacier paradise". The Viator ticket is 103 USD for this per head. I also saw that there is a 50% entrance for Eurail Pass Holders. Therefore I i am to avail this benefit, will a Day be deducted from the Eurail Pass or is this a Benefit. I am wondering if I should buy the Viator offer or not?

I am also wondering if the return to the Gornergrat station / View Point and return is free if we have a Eurail pass?

I also wanted to know if the entrance to the Matterhorn Museum is Free with the Eurail Pass? if so is a day deducted or is this a benefit.?

Hi Ruwanthi and welcome to MySwissAlps!

There are no discounts available for Gornergrat or Glacier Paradise for Eurail Select Pass holders, nor for the Matterhorn Museum.

The Swiss Travel Pass does offer 50% off Gornergrat, Glacier Paradise and free museum entrance.

In this case with your Eurail Select Pass that you have you are best off buying the Viator ticket you mentioned.

Regards,
Lucas

Hi Ruwanthi,

No, it isn't about the train type (regional or other) its the route the train travels on. You should look over the PDF maps on the links above on the passes to see what routes are covered (click on the where its valid tab).
