Hello xmakbee and Welcome to MySwissAlps,
Basing yourself in Zurich means you are going to be doing a lot of travelling backwards and forwards. Zurich to Zermatt is at least a 7 hour round trip.
You should use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable). If you haven’t used it before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable.
Which pass if any depends on your itnerary. You have to do the sums. The timetable will give you ticket prices (the first price you see will assume you have a half-fare card so you should double it to get the full price). Then you should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).
For such a short trip I would go Frankfurt to Interlaken, Interlaken to Zermatt and Zermatt to Montreux (nicer place to visit than Geneva or Lausanne) but the choice is yours.
What time of the year are you planning to travel?
