      Train tickets from Zermatt to Zurich

      Switzerland May 16, 2015 at 4:45 PM

      We will be ending a French/Swiss hiking trip in Zermatt and will be flying back to US from Zurich. I've been checking the Swiss Rail web-site for dates and times to Zurich.
      Am I correct that Swiss rail tickets do not go on sale until 30 days before departure? I can get schedules, but not fares. I don't need any Swiss rail pass since this will be the only Swiss rail ticket I have to buy. All other Swiss tranport is part of the hike trip. I know not to buy from Rail Europe due to extra cost. Is it even necessary to buy in advance or can I simply purchase ticket when I arrive in Zermatt? There seems to be many trains daily from Zermatt to Zurich. Any advice is most welcome.

      Hi there, I'd like to secure reservations for the Chocolate Train. I will probably be buying the 8-day Swiss pass. If I understood correctly, the tickets would be included in the Swiss pass but the actual seat reservation wouldn't.

      (a) is this correct, and
      (b) where do I reserve tickets for a specific date and seat for the Chocolate Train given that I'm a Swiss pass holder

I know it's possible to do this trip by train, but is there a bus also? The train is on the pricey side for him, and the bus would be cheaper.

      He did find one bus service a few weeks ago but needs to check on the schedule, and now we can't find it again! I came up with the Gare-Routier de Geneve website, but I don't see Montreux listed as a destination (that website is not very user-friendly). Thanks for your help!

      Dear friends,

      I've been wishing to take my family with me somewhere to nice country for such a long time, but there were just quick business trips. It's really so rare when we have a chance to have a good rest somewhere together. Now we have a chance to go to Switzerland for 5 days, spending 4 of them in Verbier and possibly one in Montreux. As to Verbier - the program is ok, but 1 day in Montreux is my own initiative. We'll be in 3 - me, my wife and 6 years old daughter. We just want to have a beutiful day there. Could someone recommend a good but not very expensive hotel (up to 250-300 CHF) and things to do and to see (we were thinking about Chillion, boat trip along the Lake, possibly going to Lousanne).
      I would be very obliget to you all for any piece of advice!
