"Fascinating nature in the highest mountains of the Alps."
A variety that enchants and impresses: Alpine panorama with the Matterhorn, wild nature, mountain lakes, ibex, chamois and eagle - superlatives on all levels. The Matterhorn - majestic, mystical - solitary, unique. A point of attraction and longing for all high alpinists in the world. But there are also many other attractions around the Matterhorn: Zermatt has over 150 lakes, of which Stellisee and Riffelsee are among the most famous, a top excursion destination is the three thousand metre high Gornegrat, a visit to the Matterhorn Museum shows Zermatt's development from a mountain village to an alpine holiday resort and offers many photos and facts on the first ascent of the Matterhorn. Zermatt itself is characterised by old traditions and modern tourism, the old part of the village, the barns and warehouses show how the mountain farmers of Zermatt used to live. Zermatt, is characterized by well over 100 hotels and numerous chalets, some traditionally cosy others very modern. There's always something going on here: events, celebrations and events alternate throughout the year.
