travelling from Zermatt from Interlaken

by eastmann


I'm planning to make my way from Interlaken in the late afternoon to Zermat.
In a nutshell , I'm wondering how do I get there ? I have a Eurail pass.
...and what's the latest time I should be going ?
I hope the hotels accept late checkins in the late evening ?

Some tips please on nice clean, budget accomodation in Zermatt (hopefully within walking distance for me to take the Glacier Express train - where is it by the way ?)

Any nice spot for me to go see the Matterhorn early in the morning ? The glacier Express train leaves about 10am, so i have some hours there, I plan to wake up at 6.30am.

You just take the train from Interlaken over Spiez-Visp to Zermatt. For times check (you can change language to English) The Glacier Express starts in Täsch (villge below Zermatt) You will have to change trains there anyway.

Are most hotels in Zermatt within walking distance to that village ?
Or I guess I may have to take a train there...I hope it's too long a journey. Appreciate some idea of how long.

Please recommend a good spot also to take some photos of Zermatt...unless most parts are viewable.

Zermatt is a car free village so everything is in walking distance.
From Täsch to Zermatt train station it is about a 15 minute journey.
You can walk around Zermatt village for views of Matterhorn. I do not think you will have much time for anything else. Stay on left handside of village looking uphill. You will see Materhorn from certain spots. Check my homepage for a shot I took from the village.

The Glacier Express starts from ZERMATT STATION at about 10am which is in the town.Most hotels are in easy walking distance of the station.We did the Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt last year.It is a wonderful journey.Make sure you make a reservation as you cannot travel on Glacier Express without it.You can see the Matterhorn from most places in the village.

For that private train one ticket go/return are cost 75 SFR ( aprox 50 Euro ) The hotels are not verry cheap but mybe have one chance to found one place to hostel. Make reservation before arrived in ZERMATT if want stopped 1 day therre ( I was have 2 nights on 2 ** category hotel with 55 EURO/night ). From ZERMATT to MATTERHORN is another train what are cost aprox 60 Euro.

Travel Tips for Zermatt

Good webcam to wave to your mates

by eurotravels

If you want to contact your mates to tell them to look at you on a webcam (just to torment them whilst they're in the office!) there is a good clear one at Kirchplatz. It only takes a shot every 5 minutes but seems predictable (on the hour then every 5 minutes from then).
Take a look at

Non skiers can also enjoy the mountains

by bianchis

If you are not a skier you can still enjoy the mountains by walking up to Furi or taking the cable car from Zermatt to Furi and then walking down. Recommended for families or less sporty guests sunrise trips, horse-drawn carriages, concerts, libraries (for books and games!), cinema, art galleries, museums, exhibitions.
Along the way Matterhorn is always within sight on a clear day. Numerous mountain huts and restaurants offer refreshment. The mountain railways and cable cars carry you effortlessly to the higher walking routes.

Mountains higher than the Matterhorn .

by dabidc

The top of the Gorner glacier is flanked by the Monte Rosa at 4634m on the right and to the left there is a rock face in the foreground. The next high mountain to the east, the left could be Strahlhorn 4190m, the Matterhorn is 4478m.and is much further to the right.

About midway between the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa is the Klein Matterhorn at 3883m., with the Breithorn in between at 4164m.

One map of the range of Mountains shows another mountain where the Monte Rosa appears to be, it is Dufourspize, with Monte Rosa immediately above that name. The height is given as the same, 4634 m.

My grey cells are working overtime, I believe that Monte Rosa is the Italian name, since Italy is over the mountain tops and Dufourspitze is the Swiss name in German.

I do recall that skiers can easily cross from the Swiss side to the Italian side and have a ski pass for both slopes of the mountain range.

The Gornergrat Railway


The Gornergrat Railway leads from Zermatt (1620 m) to the 3089 m high located Gornergrat. From there panoramic views of the various 4000 m high mountains including the Matterhorn can be enjoyed.

The train needs about 45 minutes for the 9,4 km long trip and also stops in Riffelalp and Riffelberg. Both places are located in the middle of Zermatt's hiking region.

Although we didn't use the Gornergrat Railway, we crossed the route several times on our hikes and always enjoyed watching it creeping up the mountain.

In summer 2007 the single fare was 38,00 CHF and the return fare was 76,00 CHF (about 48 Euro). Various discounts are available.

An exciting ride on a cogwheel train to the Gornergrat for a closer view of the majestic MATTERHORN – an experience you will never forget. The mighty mountain is one of the most famous peaks in the world and is the best known landmark in Switzerland.
