Zermatt is car-free. Private traffic is only permitted up to Täsch (5 km before Zermatt), and the road between Täsch and Zermatt is also closed to private transport.

Various car parks and uncovered parking spaces are available to you in Täsch. Some of the multi-storey car parks offer a taxi service to and from Zermatt.

The shuttle trains of the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway run between Täsch and Zermatt every 20 minutes. You can conveniently and directly transfer to the modern shuttle trains in the Matterhorn Terminal Täsch. The train journey ends 12 minutes later at the Bahnhofplatz in Zermatt – at the heart of the Matterhorn village.
