Zermatt

4.3
Scenic Drives · Mountains · Observation Decks
Best known as home the Matterhorn mountain, Zermatt serves as a chic ski resort town of the Swiss Alps. Matterhorn was one of the last Alpine peaks to be conquered and it gained international attention following the attempt by British mountaineer Edward Whymper to scale its 4,478 m (14,692 ft) height. At the foot of Switzerland's tallest mountain range, Zermatt's economy revolves around tourism; its population surges during the summer and winter seasons and slows in the off-season. Skiers and snowboarders flock here for challenging terrain in winter, while mountain bikers and road cyclists take advantage of the location in summer. Hikers also love Zermatt because it provides connection into Italy and France. The dense town center is mostly pedestrian, with some battery-powered vehicles and horse-drawn carriages. Plan your holiday in Zermatt and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Switzerland trip planner.
