The trip from Zürich airport to Zermatt takes approximately 3,5 hours. There are 2 connections per hour, however we recommend taking the one that directly reaches Visp without the need to change trains. From Visp you change to the regional cog railway which offers some great mountains views. The train ride from Geneva airport takes about four hours and you will change to the cog railway in Visp as well. Alternatively, a Zermatt taxi can be booked in advance which will drive you from the Airport directly to the entrance of the town.


As Zermatt is a car free village, you can only drive until the village of Täsch which is located five kilometres away from Zermatt. There you can park your car either at the Matterhorn Inn opposite the train station or in the Matterhorn Terminal Täsch. You can continue your journey either by Zermatt Shuttle train or taxi. We offer a shuttle service from the train station or the entry of the village for a surcharge (free for direct bookings).

If you already know your way around Zermatt, why not make it easy for yourself by using the Electronic Check-In directly at the Residence Patricia. The Residence is located near the entry of Zermatt, so if you come from Täsch by taxi you will save yourself some walking. However, if you prefer a personal check-in and want to ask some questions, we are always happy to see you at the reception of the Alpen Resort Hotel (Spissstrasse 52).
