Travel plans, routes and timetables / Re: Venice to Zermatt by Train

You're amazing! Okay, we have now booked the 5:40am - 8:12am from Venezia Santa Lucia to Milano Centrale, and are going with the risky move of making the 8:23am train from Milano Centrale, arriving at 10:16am in Brig. From there, I just need to wait to book the 10:27am train to Zermatt (as it's not open for booking on the SBB site yet), and then done!

Glorious. We also need to go from Zermatt to Geneva on December 26th, but once again, I think I need to wait until it's 30 days or less to book that trip, and we are (thankfully!) not on a time crunch with that one.

Your help has been above and beyond - THANK YOU!

Thank you SO much for all of your answers - very useful information!

I've had a chat with my group and I think we've decided to leave Venice early the morning of December 24th (hopefully that 6am or earlier train you mentioned) and getting into Zermatt by about 1pm. I searched on the DB Bahn website and it looks like there's a Venice to Brig train that leaves the Santa Lucia station at 5:40am and arrives in Brig at 11:16am with 2 stops in Milano Centrale and Domodossola. However, underneath the timetables it says "runs not every day, 25. Oct until 9. Dec 2017" so I'm not sure if it's going to be running on the day we need.

It also looks like there's an 11:27am train from Brig to Zermatt, putting us in Zermatt at 12:51pm. Perfect! One final question, though - is 10 minutes enough time to get from the platform we're dropped off at in Brig to the other train to Zermatt? I'm not sure how large the station is, so I don't know if that's a feasible turnaround time, even if we run.

Thank you for your help!!

Hi, all!

My family and I are headed to Europe for Christmas, and wondering the best way to get from Venice to Zermatt by train? We only have 2 nights in Zermatt (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), so I'd like to avoid spending the entire first day on the train. Is there an overnight option from Venice to Zermatt?

I've read tons of information about the Venice > Milan > Brig > Zermatt route, as well as the Venice > Bologna > Visp > Zermatt route, but when I actually search for the trains, I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

Any information or tips would be helpful! We don't mind spending the night on the train at all, but I would like to arrive in Zermatt no later than 2 or 3pm on Christmas Eve, and even earlier if at all possible. Thanks so much!
