The Matterhorn really is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. It's unique shape is set off from the surrounding peaks in a way that only heightens the drama. It is well worth our 6 hour drive to Täsch, the 20 minute train...More

This mountain must be seen in person to be truly appreciated. One of the most beautiful sights ever.

Although we only sent a few days in Zermatt, we never became tired of seeing the views of the Matterhorn. It is almost viewable from every angle and even better when seen from the Gornergrat railway. If on this train, stop off at the lake...More

We live in the Rockies so are used to great mountains, but the Matterhorn is truly on a class of its own.

The Matterhorn is always in the background in Zermatt. If you can get a clear photo do it quick! Beautiful mountain.

The Matterhorn has always been on my bucket list and it did not disappoint. Its beauty is overwhelming and i felt honoured to be in its mighty presence. Skiing around the base of this beautiful mountain was a very special moment in my life.

You can't ignore the Matterhorn it seems to appear in every photo you take in Zermatt. From dawn until dusk it seems to hover over the whole area. On a good day gonergrat is a great place to view the mountain and it's surroundings.

We stayed in Grindelwald 2 years ago and it was absolutely amazing. Lots of different hikes to do on the mountain faces. The nice part is that you could do the Lauterbrunnen and Wengen towns as well with the most amazing... More

That is an aggressive schedule. Zurich is very beautiful but a city that is beyond expensive and small. You need more than one day for Zermatt no matter what you choose especially if the snow is falling. While it is... More
