More on Zermatt
Sitting at the foot of the world-famous Matterhorn, the country’s most famous resort entices skiiers, climbers and hikers and those desiring epic views of the iconic pyramid-shaped peak…
Lying on the Italian border, this picturesque resort promises spectacular views and activities on your Swiss getaway, no matter the season. Zermatt is home to 38 peaks over 4,000ms and with the highest cable car station in Europe at 3,883ms, you’ll fall in love with the awe-inspiring views of the highest mountains in Switzerland, Italy and France from the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise.
There are a variety of attractions near the mighty Matterhorn to fill your Zermatt holiday itinerary, from sightseeing from the 3,089ms Gornergrat sunny observation platform, to the Matterhorn Museum. The museum houses exhibits on the area’s history and the mountaineers who climbed the majestic mountain, as well as offering a fascinating virtual tour of Zermatt.
While the Matterhorn, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy, is a magnificent, unmissable natural landmark dominating the resort’s landscapes, there is so much more to Zermatt than this striking mountain of the Alps! The car-free resort is a magnet for skiiers and snowboarders, both possible every day of the year.
Zermatt is a dreamlike destination for adventurous skiers with its long descents and off-piste runs. And with its high altitude, you’re promised snow 365 days a year! Why not ski into the alpine resort of Cervinia, Italy on your Zermatt, for a change of scenery and cuisine? Ski throughout the seasons on your Zermatt holiday, with a selection of beautiful ski chalets and luxury apartments to call home, from the Travelopo rental catalogue…
The ski resort is ideal for families, with an array of mountain adventures on offer, from gentle slopes and first-time skiing at Sunnegga to scenic walks at the 5-Seenweg (Five Lakes Walk); a path leading past the lakes of Stellisee, Grindjisee, Grünsee, Moosjisee and Leisee. As one of the most popular hikes in the Zermatt mountains, the Five Lakes Walk is not to be missed, gorgeously reflecting the peaks in its idyllic waters. Take the Gornergrat Train for a stunning journey on your Zermatt family break, giving you swift access to Tasch and Gornergrat ski areas.
And holiday-foodies won’t be disappointed either; after a hard day’s skiing, you can find a plethora of Michelin-star restaurants for mouthwatering Swiss cuisine, tastier still with glorious mountain backdrops. Don’t try to resist the oozing cheese fondues and authentic Swiss chocolate…
For an astounding experience, why not take a helicopter trip and circle the top of the Matterhorn on your Zermatt holiday? Or simply catch a mountain lift to ride up into the mountains at Rothorn, Gornergrat or Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. The Gorner gorge is another natural landmark boasting spectacular natural beauty. Located just a 15 minute walk away from Zermatt village, you can explore the gorge (in the summer) and admire its sparkling, turquoise waters.
The charming village of Zermatt itself is a wonderful area to explore – blissfully car free, and scattered with shops, cafes, bars, galleries, rural Swiss architecture and quieter, relaxed spots, ideal for those on a romantic retreat to the mountains. Explore the village’s many ancient buildings and lovely churches, window-shop, discover the streets’ hustle and bustle over the summer festival period and sample the locally produced Swiss chocolate. Meander down Hinterdorfstrasse, one of Zermatt’s oldest streets…
Music-lovers shouldn’t miss Zermatt Unplugged; a lively music festival held over five days in the spring. And of course, with its epic mountainscapes, the village is a platform for skiing and mountaineering on the towering Matterhorn. See our ski chalets and apartments in and around Zermatt today!
