Under the gaze of the Matterhorn
Zermatt is a unique, historical village tucked away in a narrow valley under the watchful eye of the famous Matterhorn, the third of the Alp’s summits.
In 2019, a new lift was inaugurated for the Klein Matterhorn. The speedy Matterhorn Glacier Ride, with 35 seats, brings skiers to the summit of the resort and the transit to Italy.
In Switzerland, the summits to the east of the village provide an unbelievable view of the Matterhorn. To the south, the glaciers are ideal for skiing on wide runs atà the foot of Klein Matterhorn. On the Italian side, both bowls—one leading to the village of Breuil-Cervinia and the other to Valtournenche—are known for their wide, gradually sloping trails and off-piste areas.
In the village of Zermatt, you can make your way down Bahnhofstrasse and explore its high-end boutiques.
