How to get to Zermatt:

We advise to fly either to ZRH or GVA and taking the train to Zermatt. From ZRH it is a very convenient train ride to Zermatt, changing the train only once. We suggest to book the train ticket 4 weeks prior: https://www.sbb.ch/en/buying/pages/kontingent/kontingent.xhtml
The earlier you buy it, the cheaper the tickets are.
