How to get there

Randa and Switzerland is in the middle of Europe and as this reachable from several directions. There are three possible airports:

  • Zurich, Switzerland
    • By train via Zurich and Visp (change the train there). Duration: slightly more than 3 hours
  • Geneva, Switzerland
    • By train via Visp (change the train there). Duration: 3 and a half hours.
  • Milano Malpensa, Italy
    • By train via Visp (change the train there). Duration: atm unknown. Still investigating.

The track from Visp to Randa is frequented by a very famous train: the Glacier Express which is known as slowest fast train of the world ;-).

From these airports you'll take the trains to reach Randa (which takes approx. 3 hours). Information about the train schedules can be found on the webpage of the Swiss federal railways SFR.

Important Notice

If you take the train from either the Swiss border or one of the Airports to Randa, you can get a reduced price ticket, called the "Swiss Transfer Ticket 2nd Class". The validity is one month. It has to be ordered on this website: http://www.swisstravelsystem.com/produkttexte.php?passid=3

The return ticket fare is Fr. 127.- for both ways (a normal price return ticket 2nd class form Geneva Airport would be Fr. 170.-, one form ZH Airport Fr. 218.-).

CAREFUL: if you order the ticket online it will cost you an additional fee to get it delivered, depending on the country you live in. Please double check that this is not higher than a regular ticket price before ordering.

Attendees List

The column "Sponsoring needed?" is to know if you need sponsoring or if you pay the travel/stay by yourself.

Please keep in mind that food and drinks are not sponsored. Switzerland is rather expensive in that regard but we have already found a way to lower the costs. A cooking plan will follow, so please be precise on your food habits (especially important for vegans/vegetarians or people with food allergies).
