Dear Veana, Thank you for your question! From Zurich to Zermatt you normally have to change once in Visp, but it depends on which train you take. The best way to check is via sbb.ch, where you can enter the departure... More

No, and trying to prepare meals in your room is discouraged too. This is my one gripe about an otherwise very good place, and yet I would stop here again if we were to revisit the area.
