Zermatt - in the heart of the alps

The magnetic draw of the Matterhorn can be felt worldwide and has made Zermatt famous internationally as a holiday destination. But the people of Zermatt have managed to prevent it from losing its feel of a village. There have been no cars on the streets of Zermatt for many years. And, bustling though the shops may be on the main street of Bahnhofstrasse, it is never far to the edge of the village. From there onwards, it is the towering mountains that set the pace. With 38 four-thousanders nearby, the peaks still command respect.

Arrival by train

Zermatt is car-free. Therefore, it makes the most sense to travel there by train. Arriving by train is convenient. And the train trip is beautiful, because it goes through the deepest cleft valley in Switzerland. Left and right are the highest mountains in Switzerland, including the Täschhorn, Dom and Weisshorn.

With the public transport service (SBB) to Visp, then change to the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn to Zermatt.
