This place is stunning! We hiked all day and it ranks as one of the best days ever! Lakes, trails, gondolas and the Matterhorn made for a fabulous summer vacation!!!!

We went to the highest point. Yes it is expensive to go to the top but the views are well worth it. The air gets a bit thin up there so I advise you walk at a nice slow pace.

One of the must see sights in Switzerland. You can see it from Zermatt but we recommend to take the Gornergratbahn and enjoy the ride and the view of this majestic peak.

You cannot miss going up the mountain to see the Matterhorn. Take your hiking boots and get ready for a lot of walking. Take in the breathtaking views. And yes there is snow and you can ski in the summer.

So we all must have a Toblerone at least once! this is the mountain featured on the packaging! The view in the summer is just stunning! Lots of professional hikers go to the top, I wish I can!

The Mattheron's iconic hooked peak is instantly recognizable. I have wanted to see it for years, and finally got the opportunity during our two night stay in Zermatt. When we arrived, the mountains were relatively clear, but the Matterhorn Peak was veiled in clinging clouds....More

We had to do two trips to get to the top of this Mountain, as we arrived in Zermatt too late for the cable-car the first time. Again, a very popular trip to make.

Zermatt is a beautiful village, in august it will be hot unless you go to the mountain tops. The gornegat railway trip would be suitable for a two year old as you can visit this comfortably, I think the cable car to the top... More
