The title of my review says it all. We went for a day trip to Zermatt from Zurich. Although a 3 hour trip because of the stops along the way it was worth every minute. Before we left for our trip to Switzerland we checked the weather every day to see what day would be best to go to Zermatt. We checked before we got to the hotel, the hotel in Zurich checked to see the weather and every day it was cloudy, or partly cloudy, 60% chance of rain, and cool only 60 degrees Fahrenheit, or about 16 Celsius. But we went anyway. I do not know where the weather prediction came from, maybe someone had to much wine because we got there and it was absolutely beautiful. Sunny, mild, clear view of the Alpine range and the Matterhorn. The town is quite interesting made for the tourist trade and I had to buy a shoulder bag to carry my coat and sweat shirt that I brought because of the incorrect weather forecast. The temperature in Zermatt was at least 20 Celsius or about 68 degrees when we got there and it went up in the afternoon. We went to Sunnegga to view the Matterhorn, my friend did not want to take a cable car any higher and this is an enclosed Funicular. We had a Swiss Pass so the cost of the trip was half. However, the view of the mountain was spectacular and had great views of the glaciers. It was worth the time and the effort just for the view. It was exhilarating.
