1/ I will fly to Geneva in mid-Jun and leave from Zurich, I've bought Swiss Travel Pass.Does the Pass cover the train from Geneva Airport to Geneva city centre; and does it cover the train from Zurich Train Station to Zurich Airport.

2/ I am planning to visit Zermatt and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, Interlaken and Jungfaujoch. May take short route hiking if there's time. Could anyone help to inform me temperature difference between town and on the mountain. e.g. if Zermatt is 24 degree C, what temp. on Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, for better preparation of clothes. Thank you.

Hi Gary,

  1. Yes it does - check the PDF map here for all routes: https://www.myswissalp validity
  2. Typically it goes down 1 degree every 100 meters. Currently Zermatt is 19 degrees and the top of Klein Matterhorn/Glacier Paradise it is 2 degrees. 17:30 local time.
