In Geneva, Mark and his buddy stayed at the Sofitel Geneva Hotel. Thank you for using our referral (“affiliate”) link to support our journalism.
In Zermatt, they stayed at Hotel Testa Grigia, right in the town center and easily walkable from the arrival train station.
All major transportation services are available, including international airports, trains, trams, buses, rental cars, tour groups, and drivers for hire.
If going to Zermatt, no cars are allowed. Drivers will need to leave their vehicle in Tasch and park at the Matterhorn Terminal Tasch, then take the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn train to Zermatt. It’s about a 12-minute train ride. Ticket prices vary by season.
Switzerland currency is the Swiss Franc. Even though the country is in Europe, it does not use the Euro.
No visa is required for visits less than three months for visitors from a wide range of countries.
Foreign tourists to Switzerland are eligible for discounted rail travel within the country. There are four main options, including some that include discounts to mountain excursions, free admission to hundreds of museums, complementary use of public transportation in 90 different localities, and even a 50% discount on some boat rides. Check each plan for details and current pricing.
Yodeling, practically a national pastime in Switzerland, is free. Look for a group to join in the city you’re visiting.
