Your holiday accommodation in Zermatt
Probably the most famous holiday resort in the Valais, Zermatt is located in the midst of Switzerland's highest Alpine peaks in a grandiose mountain landscape. Probably one of the most famous mountains in Switzerland is Zermatt's landmark, the Matterhorn (4,478 m above sea level), which was first climbed in 1865. The Mattertal has been accessible by railway since 1891. The famous Swiss village itself is car-free.
The location of Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn and in the middle of an enormous hiking and ski region makes it one of the world's most attractive vacation villages. The ski region encompasses 54 mountain railways and lifts as well as 360 kilometers of pistes. The region called "Matterhorn glacier paradise" is Europe's largest and highest lying summer skiing region.
