How many days

by clayton_kl

How many days should I stay in Zermatt? Is two days enough, or should I make it three or four?

Clayton

Re: How many days

by Roadquill

Clayton, I skiid there for a day and got the flavor of the town. There are many small shops and it is cool to walk around, but the place is not that big. In the summer there are many hiking trails. But if I went back it would only be for a couple of days. Karl

Re: How many days

by julin

I would say more than 2days.By the time you have been up to Gornergrat on the cog train and had a wander around you will need other days for trips up to Klein Matterhorn and Rothorn on cable cars.If you have 3 full days that should be enough but we always stay at least 5 but then we love it so much we don't want to leave.

Re: How many days

by marbar1

Clayton, don't know if you've gone already. It is difficult to answer your question so I will try and give you some information. Your answer depends on what you want out of going to Zermatt. I see so many "tourists" run in and out of this area. It is really spectacular if you enjoy the outdoors. If you want to enjoy the outdoors, hike, or ski I do not think two days is sufficient. Do get up into the mountains. It is expensive, especially with the low dollar.
There are several passes that will allow 1/2 price tickets. Go to the zermatt.ch website. Click on the british flag. Then go to the lifts and gonergrat train menus and click in. Look for price. At the bottom it will tell you which passes are good for half fares-not for skiing,however. Also it is possible that when you arrive, the weather could be overcast. What is the point of going so far and not seeing the views. Hope this is helpful.

A photo, me and most of the Matterhorn,

by dabidc

Well after I begged and pleaded for someone to take the photo, to prove I was there and that I did not buy all the photos, the result is a photo that shows a bit of the hotel reconstruction, most of the great Matterhorn and also yours truly, ready for any adventure, well almost.

Gornergrat Monte Rosa Bahn (Zermatt - Gornergrat)

The second longest ice stream of the Alps, the Gorner Glacier, is at your feet and an extensive hiking area is waiting to be explored by you.

For bikers there is a choice of four different routes and early risers on sunrise rides are rewarded with a unique atmosphere.

Adult CHF 67.- EUR 45.-
Half fare card CHF 34.- EUR 23.-
Child (6-16y.) CHF 34.- EUR 23.-

The view from Gornegratt

by sierralyndon

Take the train to the Gornegratt for spectacular views of the Matterhorn, the Monte Rosa, and the Klein Matterhorn among others.

The ride takes about 40 minutes each way... costs a bit to buy the ticket individually (ie without the 3 or 5 day passes) but well worth it.
