3 hours, roughly.

There is a train an hour leaving Zürich HB for Visp. Change there for Zermatt.

For timetables see www.sbb.ch/en

I don't mean to disagree but I think the time from Zurich to Zermatt is closer to 3:20 and 3:30 from the airport. It is however, a very enjoyable ride.

The airport adds about 15 min. (travel time) to the time from the main station in Zurich. Where do you want to catch the train?

I just checked the SBB site. Zürich airport to Zermatt - 3h 39mins on the fast train to Visp and then the MGB to Zermatt. Geneva airport to Zermatt - 3hr 59mins

UniK, for a first post this sounds awfully sarcastic! Did you mean to be sarcastic or is it use of English creating a misimpression? We don't usually do sarcasm here on the Swiss forum and H. is thanked many times every day for her detailed posts that help a great number of travelers to feel more knowledgeable and comfortable.
