Access Zermatt/Breuil-Cervinia/Valtournenche – Matterhorn & on-site parking

The ski resort is accessed either via Zermatt (Switzerland), Breuil-Cervinia (Italy) or Valtournenche (Italy).

Zermatt is located in the Canton of Valais in southwestern Switzerland. You can only access Zermatt by train because it is a car-free village. You park your car in Täsch in a parking garage (2100 spaces, fee is charged) and board the train. Modern shuttle trains depart for Zermatt every 20 minutes and the ride takes 12 minutes. You can access Täsch from different directions, but you must always travel through the valley from Visp to Täsch if you don't board the train already in Visp.
From Germany: Basel–Bern–Thun–Kandersteg (Lötschberg auto train)–Goppenstein–Visp or via Zurich (direction of Gotthard)–Furka auto train (Realp–Oberwald) and then continue through Goms towards Visp.
From western Switzerland: A9 from Lake Geneva towards Visp.
From Milan/Italy: Through the Simplon Pass (open all year) or with the Brig-Iselle auto train to Visp.

You can also arrive in Zermatt by helicopter. The heliport in Zermatt is operated by Air Zermatt.
