Vacation in Zermatt

Location and orientation

The village in alpine regions

The holiday resort of Zermatt, located in the Swiss canton of Valais, lies in the Visp district at an altitude of 1,610 metres. There is a general ban on cars throughout the town, which may only be circumvented with special permission and by ski buses and taxis with electric motors. Due to its location at the north-eastern foot of the Matterhorn, you will find a wonderful winter sports and hiking area directly at the gates of the village. Zermatt is also a centre for mountaineers in the Alps.

More about the natural landscape of the region

With an area of around 240 square kilometres, Zermatt is one of the largest municipalities in Switzerland. The area comprises small parts of populated areas, forests and agricultural areas on the alpine pastures and, for the most part, special nature reserves. The Dufourspitze belongs to the Monte Rosa massif and is the highest point in the municipality with an altitude of 4,634 metres. It is also interesting that not far from Zermatt the border to Italy is located, which is only passable for skiers and pedestrians over the Theodulpass due to the ice layer.

Zermatt has the highest and largest summer skiing area in Europe. The longest descent is seven kilometres long and runs from Trockener Steg to Klein Matterhorn.

Travelers and Activities

Skiing at any time of the year

In Zermatt you can use three winter sports regions, which you can easily reach from your apartment. These include the Gornergrat, the ski area "Matterhorn glacier paradise" and the "Sunegga paradise". All three ski regions are connected by the Furi-Riffelberg connecting railway. In total there are 257 kilometres of slopes and 63 mountain railways at your disposal. In addition, cross-country skiing is a special pleasure in this holiday region, as the alpine landscapes of Zermatt are simply fantastic. Due to the glacier areas, you can even pursue your favourite sport on two boards in Zermatt during the summer months.

Hiking on high mountain peaks

A unique landscape area with indescribably beautiful views opens up for hikers around Zermatt. The network of hiking trails covers 400 kilometres, which lead through valleys and over mountains. The route from Saas-Fee via the Balfrin high-level trail to Grächen is very popular. Mountain climbers can face real challenges in the Mattertal valley. Among the most popular climbing areas are the Kleine Matterhorn and the Theodulhorn. A multi-day, high-alpine, international hike across the Mont Blanc massif in France to the Valais Alps takes three days and is known as the "Haute Route".

Top travel tips

1. Numerous chapels adorn the townscape

The Swiss Alpine village and its inhabitants are largely influenced by the Roman Catholic denomination. This is particularly reflected in the numerous chapels and churches that you will discover during your walk. The oldest sacred building is the parish church with a 16th century chapel. The chapels Winkelmatten, Blatten, Findeln and Ried/Howeten, consecrated to various saints, date from the 17th century. Worth seeing is also the English church St. Peter, the chapel Riffelalp and the construction of the cross way Schibuwaldje.

2. An unusual archaeology museum in the Swiss mountain village

If you walk to the church square of Zermatt, a striking glass dome will immediately catch your eye. It contains the Matterhorn Museum Zermatlantis, which has staged and exhibited an archaeological excavation site. This archaeological site is a sunken village with 14 houses that you can also visit.

3. Enjoy top-class music from above

The Zermatt Festival always takes place in September and is a follow-up to the Zermatt Summer Concerts from the 1950s and 1960s. On the occasion of the classical music festival, famous orchestras, such as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, travel to Zermatt to perform at fantastic venues, such as the Riffelalp Chapel at 2,222 metres above sea level.
