Zurich to zermatt by train
I am going to zermatt for my honeymoon in January and would like to take the train from Zurich airport to zermatt via the glacier express. However I am finding the Swiss rail website quite confusing.
Do I need to go to visp and then take the glacier express ? Can I buy one ticket and use on all trains or do i need to buy separate tickets. Is there one website that I can book the whole lot on?
Are there different seat types as we would like to have a meal en route.
Any help would be much appreciatedPosted 4 years agostimMember
http://www.sbb.com but maybe thats what you have been looking at already. Looks like you will have to change in Visp whether you take the Glacier Express or not.
If you take a look around the sbb website, often you will see deals on tickets or travel cards which you could also use for something like the Gournagrat railway in Zermatt.Posted 4 years agoioloMember

Forget glacier express.
Save your money for Zermatt, You’ll need it.jambalayaSubscriber
@stonemonkey. I think the route is from airport you take a short train ride to main Zurich station (HBB) then get on train for Chur. These are normal double-decker trains (runs alongside the lake which is nice). The mountain railway style trains start in Chur. I’ve done trip Zurich to Arosa a few times, normal trail to Chur then mountain railway. The Glacier Express is something I want to do, need to save up though. Zermatt is stunning.
There are typically lots of train offers (e.g. 2 for 1) it’s worth checking these out, your Hotel in Zermatt should be able to help.Posted 4 years ago
