    The village of Täsch is 1,449 metres above sea level and is home to around 998 people. It is situated 6 km from the world-famous tourist region of Zermatt and its majestic landmark - the Matterhorn.

    Täsch is located in the Mattertal valley, which contains almost all the highest peaks in the Alps such as Dufourspitze, Dom and Weisshorn. The 4490 metres high Täschhorn lies directly above the village.

    Car drivers can park their cars at Täsch and continue by train to Zermatt, which is a car-free town.

    If you want to join Zermatt, the best way is using by train, taking the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn.
    If you take a 2 way ticket will cost you about CHF. 15.--
    The train is really confortable and clean, as well fast.

    Parking Place in T��sch.

    by Pakistaniguy Written Oct 2, 2002

    Täsch is an important city because of its geographical position. All the tourists going to Zermatt have to leave there CARS and oterh vehicles here and then have to catch a train for Zermatt. Only people with EXTRA Special Permission are allowed to drive to Zermatt. For example, please in fire brigade and army. So, we also parked our car in the parking lot right next to the Railway Station.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Winter can be really cold and you can expect temperatures low to -10 °C, so plan some warm clothes, a windstopper jacket and confortable shoes that will also keep you warm and dry.

    Something you shouldn't forget is some sun protection, you can easily get bourned from the winter sun, for both your lips and face.

    Favorite thing: It is always better to be informed about road conditions.
    So for this reason here's a website that wil tell you every Swiss tunnel and mountain pass status, open or closed.
