One thing is for certain, there is no subway in a mountain resort like Zermatt, right? Wrong. The Sunnegga-Bahn, a part of the "Rothorn Paradise" transportation system to get from Zermatt to the Rothorn, will whisk you from Zermatt to Sunnegga in about 3 minutes. You actually have to walk into the mountain about 150 meters (200 yards), then board the sloped train by a series of steps. When you get to Sunnegga, you have to exit and climb stairs to make your way out to Sunnegga. You'll have to climb the same number of stairs, so choose whether you want to climb them as you enter or as you exit. There is elevator access for those with limited mobility.

Travel between Zermatt and Sunnegga costs CHF 14.50 one way, CHF 22.50 round trip. Cost with Swisspass or half-fare card is CHF 7.50/11.50. The subway is closed for maintenance from late April through late May.
