Hello! I have tried to find an existing post on this question, but can't find an exact answer. My husband and I (2adults) are arriving in Zurich at 9:50 on Saturday September 26, 2014. We plan on going straight to our hotel and exploring the city that day. We have a hotel booked from Saturday night and check out Tuesday (3 nights).
Sunday we were thinking of taking the earliest train from Zurich to Zermatt and returning back to Zurich the same day at night. I know this is a lot of traveling for a day trip. I have been to Zermatt, but my husband has not. We would like to go up to the Matterhorn as well as I did not get the chance last time I was there. Questions ----
What train/ticket can we get for same day travel to and from Zurich to Zermatt?
Is there a ticket that can also get us to the Matterhorn?
Is there somewhere/something you would suggest we do as a day trip in Switzerland leaving from Zurich?
We love the mountains, caves, glaciers, small towns, architecture, history. I would actually love to ski or snowboard somewhere if this is an option?.. My husband will watch or build a snow castle :) if there is any snow. I hope these interest will help in advising us.
Monday - No plans... Tour the city? Suggestions ?
Tuesday- We want to take an early train to Munich. Suggestions on which train and ticket will be most affordable would be appreciated. We will have two large pieces of luggage.
Thank you in advance!
