Geneva Train Station!!!

Hii!!

We will be arriving at Geneva CFF station from Paris (Gare De Lyon).

We need to catch our train from Geneva to Zermatt (Via Visp) the same day.

Please suggest whether the train to Visp will leave from the same station i.e Geneva CFF train station?

Cheers!!!

Yes, normally a simple change of platform.

When planning, do take into consideration the fact you'll have to pass through Customs upon arrival from Paris. Normally this is quick. But you might want to have at least 15 minutes to change trains.

To Visp, there are two trains per hour, each of them having a planned connection with the Zermatt train. Do buy your tickets before boarding as there is now a CHF 90 (about USD 100) surcharge if you don't have them with you. You can buy either at Geneva station or online on http://www.rail.ch where as Joe mentioned (rail.ch = sbb.ch) all the schedules are available.

Not any longer; you get two different pages.

Use www.sbb.ch/en/home.html to go direct to Timetable.

Weird. While it is only one extra click, still it is an extra click... Not a good change...

It's Ok for those that know the system but has been causing problems for casual users.
