Hey All! We had a great weekend trip to Zermatt thanks to inputs from folks here. I’m posting some information for anybody else who needs it.
We are non-skiers (I wished we were after this trip!) so we were there for sightseeing.
The 2-day Peak Pass worked well for us, CHF 125 per person with the Swiss Half Fare Card. We purchased it at the Tourism Office beside the train station so no queues, the folks there were super helpful. The pass included the following:
Gornergratbahn Cogwheel train (option to get on and off at stops but not ideal during winter, we went straight to the top, sit at the right side going up)
Main lifts line to Klein Matterhorn (Matterhorn Glacier Paradise) passing through Furi, Schwarzsee (get off for Matterhorn photos) and Trockener Steg (change lifts here).
Funicular to Sunnegga and lifts to Rothorn.
Green E-bus to go around Zermatt
The pass is worth it as you save versus buying individual tickets and gives you the schedule flexibilty. I was not expecting the ride up to Kleinmatterhorn to be that amazing, highest I’ve been in my life!!! We loved Gornergrat too as it wasn’t as cold as Kleinmatterhorn and we just took in the views - the scopes there have a good feature so try to take a peek. You can skip Rothorn if you’re not hiking or skiing but the views are still amazing. We also went to the Matterhorn museum (Zermattlantis?) and learned about some history and controversy. Don’t forget to take a quick stroll through the town as well and relax a bit.
If you’re pressed for time you can do Kleinmatterhorn and Gornergrat in 1 day, a day pass is available.
Hope this helps! More adventures for all!
