Tourist information

The location of Zermatt at the base of the Matterhorn and in the middle of a large hiking and ski province makes it one of the Europe's most alluring family vacation villages. The ski region encircles more than 360 kilometers of pistes. The province is legendary amongst mountaineers: the Haute Route, a demanding international route that takes a couple of days to complete, leads from Mont Blanc to Zermatt. More than 400 kilometers of treking paths lead through the Matter Valley, including the mule traders' paths, which date back to the 13th century (a part of these paths is paved). In winter months, the snow-assured ski province features more than 360 kilometers of pistes in three varied ski areas: the Sunnegga-Rothorn, Gornergrat-Stockhorn, Schwarzsee and Matterhorn glacier heaven. Snowboarders and Freestyler are able to hone their skills in the Snowpark Zermatt in which Olympic hopefuls as well train.

With sights over a couple of the most awe-inspiring scenery in Valais, holiday accommodation in Zermatt can be found in the shade of the mighty Matterhorn, a mountain of such beauty that there couldn't be a number of other landmarks to provoke similar feelings of awe and wonder anywhere else in the Swiss Alps. Cozy mountain chalets and holiday apartments in Zermatt are the perfect choice.


The river Vispa runs right through Zermatt and there are three prime roads which run along the banks of the river Vispa, and innumerable cross-streets, particularly around the station and the church which forms the heart of the village. In general anything is at most a twenty minute walk away if you are fit. During the course of the summer there are roads and treking paths leading up to a variety of year-round eating places in the direction of the Matterhorn.


Zermatt is an exceptional place to mountain bike. Bicycles can be hired from a couple of stores around Zermatt from roughly 40CHF for a hard tail and 50CHF for a full suspension daily downhill rigs are 100CHF per day and helmets are included.


If you're on a budget, try camping in Zermatt. The atmospheric conditions are gentle, even in the winter months, so if you know a bit about camping you should be able to stay warm and dry at pretty much any altitude lower than about 500 meters above the village. For beginner campers there is a camping area open in Zermatt during the course of the summer.
