Zermatt Matterhorn


Zermatt, summer, Valais


The first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865 marked the beginning of the myth of, and fascination with, alpine climbing – turning the mountain village into a leading destination. Zermatt is one of the great tourist destinations. There are nearly forty 4000-metre peaks in the immediate vicinity. It offers the finest hotels and gastronomy in the world, its ski resort is the highest in the Alps and offers snow year-round, and the rainfall is the lowest in Switzerland (300 days of sun). Its air is absolutely fresh, clear and healthy: the village is ideal for family holidays with its car-free zone, offering relaxed strolls through the Zermatt shopping district. A family paradise, this resort has been awarded the Family Destination label by the Swiss Tourism Federation.
