Zermatt is Carfree
so the train is a Must !
It might make sense to leave your car in a place like Brig and take the train in order to get to Zermatt, but even when you go to the end of this valley by car, you have to leave your car in Taesch, in a distance of 5 km from Zermatt.
Taesch is the last but one station of Matterhorn - Gotthardbahn, before you will get to Zermatt. This cogwheel-train is a seperate train-system leaving from Brig, in front of the main trainstation.
There are a lot of extra-trains going to and fro between Taesch and Zermatt, in addition to the regular trains to Brig. Inside the train you will find small tables at the windows, where you will find a good map printed on it of the area around Zermatt and Brig.
The tickets for the train from Zermatt to Gornergrad have to be bought in Zermatt !
The train Taesch - Zermatt :
a returnticket is 15,20 sfr ( 10 euro)
from Zermatt to Gornergrad
