Rail Geneva to Zermatt

by tomtomj

I would like to make a day trip from geneva to zermatt, return. What is the best fare? Note this will be my only rail thip in switzerland.

Re: Rail Geneva to Zermatt

The question about what the "best" fare is, is pretty much moot in Switzerland. The fare is what it costs, and there is no way to get it lower other than getting a reduction card or a pass, which in your case is not worth it.
The fare for a return Geneva - Zermatt is CHF 176,-.

You can find Swiss train times, details and fares in English here:

As noted, the fare is 88 CHF one way.

Re: Rail Geneva to Zermatt

by puerto_lover

It's quite confusing. I recently went to Lake Geneva and bought rail/bus/boat tickets. This appeared to be the best way. Then I discovered that there was a so called Regional Pass «Lake Geneva - Alps» that would have been really useful and would have encouraged more use of the regional transport. I could not find this regional pass on the basic details found when opening http://www.sbb.ch/en/

The Geneva Pass offer is detailed on----
http://www.swisstravelsystem.com/regiopass.php?regiopassid=5

http://mct.sbb.ch/mct/en/reisemarkt/abos-billette/abonnemente/verbunde.htm

and then you get offered a ----

" The 1-day travelpass for the Half-Fare travelcard."

Now that seems a real offer not to miss ! But is it ? You clearly need to buy the Half-Fare Travelcard and that costs....

And then you have a BIRTHDAY PASS ! But note also ---Exception: passengers born on 29 February can also purchase the special ticket to travel on 28 February or 1 March.

Now if I was celebrating my Birthday in Switzerland what a marvellous idea --- or is it ?

A day trip to Zermatt on my Birthday !

It can be really tricky finding the 'DEAL' on Swiss Travel System.

Thanks for all your answers.
It seems that the best I can do is get a transfer ticket, for $126 return. I checked the regional tickets but they wont take me all the way.

Travel Tips for Geneva

Skip it and see another canton

by Rina120

I've spent lots of time in Switzerland and I was most unimpressed with Geneva. The small town of Schaffhausen had more excitement! The streets were filthy with Dog feces everywhere. I had to remind myself that I was in Switzerland!
I should have taken the advice and visited Lausanne, but American me wanted to see well known Geneva.
Zurich on a sunday night was busier than Geneva on a saturday and much cleaner! Also, I found the prices in Geneva much higher than Zurich. Seeing all the watchmaker buildings over the Lake Geneva. Very impressive and reminded you where you were.

The Arms of Geneva

by gordonilla

The armorial bearings of today arose for the first time in the 15th century. They represent the union of the Empire symbols (eagle with a crowned head) to which Geneva had been attached to since the 11th century and of the Bishop (golden key) from whom the citizen obtained their freedom and autonomy in 1387.

The crest is a half-rising sun on the upper edge and bearing the trigramme IHS in Greek letters, representing the shortened form of the name Jesus (IHESUS).

The Geneva's motto " Post tenebras lux " (After the darkness, the light) had its origin in the middle of the 16th century. It refers to the Reformation.

Calvin College

by sandysmith

Calvin College was inaugurated by Calvin in June 1559. Ten hours a day, six days a week Calvin trained preachers how to preach and for the faithful to understand them! It rapidly acquired a solid reputation, spreading its influence far beyond Geneva's borders.For many years the college was the only school building in Geneva - today it is devoted to secondary education.

Annecy-worth a visit!

by Xfire

When you are in Geneva and you have got enough time, go to Annecy.

In Annecy you can find sth for anyone. Visit the beautiful city-center, old town, stroll along the lake or river, go shopping, visit "petite boutiques", go shopping, have an ice-cream/coffee/crêpe somewhere.

Caution: Extremly crowded on Saturdays!

Check online or the train station for timetable. I would recomment though to take the bus from/to Eaux-Vives, because it was a scheduled 2h-trip, but depends on the traffic. On our way back we took that one and arrived in Geneva only a hour later.

Round-trip was 33 CHF.

Pour une nuit d'ivresse...

by Tripack about Qu'importe...


Qu'importe le flacon pourvu qu'on ait l'ivresse!

An excellent and cosy wine bar in the center of the relaxing Carouge area. A fine wine selection and some tapas is waiting for your papillae: I would recommend and taste the Renaissance to discover a fruitly and sunny nectar from the Domaine Viret (Côtes du Rhône, South East of France). The powerful and exquisite Grenache will promise you a cheerful tasting... A consommer avec modération toutefois ;-)

Cheers!
