Hi Lreid617-

Welcome to My Swiss Alps! That should be a nice Christmas holiday. I hope that they have snow in the village.

Hi Lreid617,

as you are traveling from France, have a look at www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/france, it explains you how to get the cheapest train ticket from Paris to Switzerland. Also please use the timetable at www.myswissalps.com/ti metable (use the advanced one on the right side), to see the trains from Paris to Zermatt. You need to change at least 2 times, and it will take around 6-7 hours to get to Zermatt.

I hope this will help, good planning!
