As with most beautiful European resorts, travel is an adventure. The scenery is amazing, the roads are excellent and the trains are, well, like trains should be – comfortable and on-time.
By train: We recommend taking a train from the Zurich Airport to Zermatt which can take around 3.5 hours. If you want a quicker trip, there are faster trains that can shave off 30 minutes. You’ll usually find around 46 trains per day running on this route, which spans 170 km. You’ll have to make 1 change along the way on your journey to Zermatt.
By car: Guests arriving by car will need to park their vehicles in Täsch, the last town before Zermatt. There is a beautiful new parking structure and train station in Täsch. Once parked, load your luggage on the train to Zermatt and we’ll pick you up upon arrival. The Hotel Albatros is only a short carriage ride away.
