Get in[edit]

You can fly to Geneva and take a train to Brig (3 hour direct train from Geneva Airport to Brig).

It is an ideal base to go for Glacier Express. Zermatt is 1 hr by train while Italy is 30 minutes away by train (Domodossola). Being close to Italy also means that there is sufficient supply of nice pizza here.
