Summary

Of all the scenic mountains that make up the Alps, the Matterhorn appears to be the primal stunner well loved by climbers, thrill seekers, and nature junkies from all over the world. Perfected by nature, shaped by the passing of time, the Matterhorn ("peak in the meadows" in German language) that we know today stands fiercely as a bucketlist destination - a paradise offering different authentic mountain experiences. The best way to experience this stellar peak is through Zermatt, a quaint Swiss town that lies in its foothills. Discover miles of pistes, astonishing slopes, and a magnificent fusion of sun and snow as you take in the breathtaking sight of the iconic mountain. Visit the Matterhorn Museum and take a moment to honor the triumphs and tragedies of the people who tried conquer the mighty giant.

You may drop by Iglu Dorf, the world’s largest snow igloo during your free time, or simply take a stroll through the car-free village to appreciate the ravishing landscapes. Get up close to the Matterhorn with an excursion to the Gornergrat aboard the world's first open-air cog railway. Get hypnotized by the glorious alpine views as the train crosses stunning bridges, tunnels, and idyllic forests at an altitude of 3,089 m. Try the walking paths or have some sunny moment in the terrace of the Gornergrat Restaurant. You don’t need to be a mountaineer or a skilled climber to experience the mighty Matterhorn - a lot is in store for you in Zermatt from active adventures to tranquil holidays.
