The village of Zermatt has been car-free for decades and may not be driven on by cars. Visitors who have booked a hotel in Zermatt will be driven to Täsch (a village before Zermatt). There the guests get on a train which takes them to the village of Zermatt. Duration of the journey approx. 13 minutes!
Arrived in Zermatt the guests board an electric taxi which then brings the guests and the luggage to the booked hotel.
The whole thing is well timed and works very well!
The journey leads from Zurich, Zug to Lucerne, along Lake Lucerne, Lake Sarnen and Lake Lungern in the direction of the Brünig Pass (approx. 1000 m.a.s.l.), where for the first time you will experience an impression of the imposing Swiss mountains.
A professional and discreet driver who also has a lot to tell about the route and the surroundings.
From the Brünig Pass down to Lake Brienz, past the tourist town of Interlaken to Lake Thun. A few kilometres along the shores of Lake Thun (at water level!!) Then you drive through an idyllic valley to Kandersteg.
A special attraction, very rare in Europe, awaits the passenger here! The car is loaded onto a train with passengers and luggage. The train travels through a large mountain (Lötschberg) in 15 minutes. At the end of the tunnel we return to the STrasse and continue into the beautiful Valais. A fertile valley in the south of Switzerland.
Now about 40 minutes through the wild Mattertal up to Täsch where the car ride ends!
The whole trip takes about 3.5 hours. (without break) if desired also with short coffee break on the way. The journey time depends somewhat on the loading times on the train.
