How do you reach Zermatt?
The car-free village of Zermatt can be reached by train, taxi or helicopter.
If you arrive by car, please park in Täsch, the village before Zermatt. There you will have two options: either park your car in the public parking situated in the train station that links Zermatt by train within 12 minutes every 20 minutes. Or park in one of the private parkings along the main road. These are proposing private mini bus shuttles to Zermatt. Very convenient if you arrive late at night.
For air travellers, we can arrange private car transfers from the airport to the Chalet on request. Otherwise, take the train directly from the airport and reach Zermatt in 3½ hours from Zurich-Kloten and in 4 hours from Geneva-Cointrin. Change trains in Visp.
Alternative: taxis, helicopter (Air Zermatt), Glacier Express.
