      Ausgezeichneter Ablauf - ich konnte das Ticket in der App an einer Maschine am Bahnhof ohne anstehen scannen und bekam sogleich das ausgedruckte Ticket für das Tor. Andere Kunden mussten in der Schlange stehen. Priority boarding hingegen half bei der aktuellen Auslastung nicht viel; es gibt zwar einen gesonderten Eingang in die Wartehalle, aber danach keinen priorisierten Zugang zum Zug.

      The mountain railways in Switzerland are all very expensive. But because we had such fantastic weather it was worth every franc. It was not so great that the lanes are way too full during the Corona period. There is very little responsibility to be seen on the part of the railway company.

      A "Must Do" while in Zermatt!

      Although the tickets are rather pricey, this is one heck of a ride...worth every cent. Still, you can imagine what it cost to build, and now maintain this rail system. Quite an engineering feat! To get up top for one of the best vistas I have ever experienced n my life is truly worth it. One of the most special, awesome places on the planet! Highly recommended!
