Kandersteg to Zermatt

Can you get from Kandersteg to Zermatt via car train?

If so does anyone have a link to a website to make reservations?

No, the car train only goes through the tunnel. You have to unload in Goppenstein.

There are no reservations.

You don't need reservations on the car train just follow the signs for the loading facility at Kandersteg. Cars are not allowed into Zermatt you have to park your car at Tasch and take the passenger train.

The riffelalp hotel is along a track from the Riffelalp train stop. Contact the hotel and they will be at the station to meet you and transport your luggage. In the summer they use a battery operated tram I guess in the winter it will be something a bit more robust.
