Where Is Zermatt?
A cozy, picturesque enclave in the German-speaking Valais region of the Swiss Alps is Zermatt, known most famously for its iconic peak, Matterhorn. The town shares its southern border with Italy and is also very near the French border. Zermatt is the last stop on the Glacier Express coming from St. Moritz, but most visitors arrive by flight from Geneva, Zurich, or Milan then by train through Visp.
What Is Zermatt Known For?
A long-beloved glamorous resort town, Zermatt’s base elevation is over 5,200 feet, with the mountain peaks rising up all around. Monte Rosa is the highest peak in Switzerland at 15,200 feet, and both Theodore Roosevelt and Winston Churchill scaled Matterhorn separately in the late 1800’s. The town’s attractions focus on skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and mountaineering. Skiing is available year-round on the glaciers, thanks to the high altitude. For the less athletically-inclined, there are easier walks, spas, pubs, and scenic train or cable car rides. Fame and increased visitation have come at the cost of higher than average prices for similar adventures in the area. Zermatt is a car-free town with three main streets and smaller alleys used by pedestrians, electric taxi use, horse-drawn carriages, or special delivery. This equates to no air pollution and incomparable tranquility. The town is small and densely packed, making it easy to get around on foot. There are also a number of cable cars going from the village up the many mountains for spectacular, low-effort views.
