Hello, can anyone tell me anything more about the Peak Pass? My understanding is that it can be used on all mountain railways AND cable cars throughout the Zermatt region. We are going in September and intend to use the pass to access as much of the area as possible while we are there. We don't intend to do any skiing, only walking.

Is it better to purchase before hand or to wait until we arrive in Zermatt? Does the Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi entitle you to 50% off the peak pass?

Thank you for your help

Hi Carolyn,

The Zermatt Peak Pass includes all the major lifts and trains, but no ski lifts, so it fits your requirements. This is what's included:

  • Cable car Zermatt - Klein Matterhorn + entrance to the glacier palace
  • Gondola Zermatt - Schwarzsee
  • Cogwheel train Zermatt - Gornergrat
  • Funicular/cable car Zermatt - Sunnegga - Blauherd - Rothorn
  • Trains Randa - Täsch - Zermatt

The Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi qualifies as a half fare card so it should give you a discount on the Peak Pass. It's not 50% off though, but about 25%.

The Swiss Transfer Ticket Combi needs to be purchased online here (select the right product from the "Rail product" list and click "Show results"). The Peak Pass can be purchased locally or online here.
