Good to know!

The Local Resident’s Card of the Valais municipalities provides an easy way to save money. Many cable car companies offer discounts to local residents, as does the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway on journeys in the Mattertal valley. The offers aren’t usually obvious at first glance, so it’s worth asking for clarification before you buy your tickets.  For example, some ski schools and thermal baths also offer discounts with a valid Local Resident’s Card. The Card is issued by the municipalities and must be renewed at the municipality every year. Fees for issuing and renewing the card vary by municipality. The fee charged for issuing the Card is often CHF 10, while renewal is generally free.

Club life

The land of clubs
Clubs have a long history in Switzerland. Half of the Swiss population belongs to at least one club. For this reason, clubs are also seen as the glue that binds society together. Almost half of them are sports clubs, although cultural, social and political clubs are also important. The best way to get an overview of the club landscape is to contact the municipalities directly. They keep a list of their clubs, which is usually available online. You can find out about admission conditions and how to try out a club via the contacts provided.
