Hi,

We are staying at Vevey with two children 1oy & 7y.

Q1; Please advise on how to get to Matterhorn? We have a swiss travel pass.

Q2; What all is there to do with children on a day trip and what tickets do we need to buy.

Thanks.

G

Hi Shivpuri,

You can plan the train trip from Vevey to Zermatt here.
You don't need to buy any tickets as far as Zermatt if you have the Swiss Travel Pass (and Swiss Family Card for the kids).

You can't actually visit the Matterhorn - your options are to visit other mountains in Zermatt for the best view points. The 2 options are Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn/Glacier Paradise.

The Swiss Travel Pass gets your 50% off the ticket price to either mountain above (kids travel free)

A fantastic beautiful town to stroll through and visit many places and beautiful shops. The views of the Matterhorn are fantastic and can be seen from the Klein Matterhorn or Gornergrat. BUT if you want to visit the Matterhorn the once-in-a-lifetime experience is to take a helicopter tour. you will never regret it.
