What's not to love about this place? Make sure to check out the cemetery in the heart of Zermatt with some of the climbers who died while climbing. Most of them were young adults about 17-25.
My favorite place on earth so far!

Beautiful and a must see in Switzerland. After all I am sure many people have heard of the ride at Disney named after the Matterhorn. The ride up the mountain is fairly inexpensive , once on the mountain there are many places to hike and enjoy a lunch. The town below is Zermatt and it offers the feel of a ski village similar to Vail, beautiful however very expensive.

just... WOW... this will make you feel very small & insignificant & make so much seem not that important while you are staring up at it, from the slopes or from Zermatt. i went sledding with a friend & the kids she was caring for while here. what an experience! you haven't sledded til you've done it on the slopes of the Matterhorn! skiing/snowboarding here is madly expensive, just be ready for that!

Travelled from Geneva to Zermatt by train for almost 4-5 hours. Then another train ride to reach the famous Matterhorn. Truly an amazing journey! It was the closest encounter to nature and it seemed that the sky was just within my reach. All year round of snow. Really wonderful!
