The right choice for a ticket to the Trockener Steg

An impressive vantage point in the Swiss Alps: Trockener Steg. A trip to Trockener Steg is definitely worthwhile, either with a single ticket or a return. As an alternative to single-trip tickets, there is also the Peak Pass.  

If you haven’t had your fill of the Zermatt adventure, you’ll want to visit one of our other peaks – in which case, the Peak Pass is ideal. It offers unlimited travel on the sections between Zermatt - Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, Zermatt - Rothorn, Zermatt - Gornergrat and Furi - Riffelberg (as timetabled).

Alternatively, this station could be part of a trip to Italy and back. We’d recommend booking the Matterhorn Alpine Crossing for that.
