Most visitors book a Zermatt accommodation for skiing and snowboarding, but there are also several museums, hiking trails and a shopping district for those looking to mix it up. Begin your trip by jumping on Gornergrat Bahn, Europe's highest cogwheel railway, which takes you on a scenic 30-minute journey up to the peak of Gorgengrat. Sit on the right-hand side of the train for the best views of The Matterhorn. These vistas are only rivalled by those found at Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, the highest cable car station in Europe. From here you’ll get sweeping views of The Matterhorn, Mont Blanc in France and Gran Paradiso in Italy. This is also the starting point for those who want to hike Breithorn Mountain. Warm up with a hot toddy at one of the city’s upscale restaurants before hitting the town to experience the nightlife—it’s legendary.
Zermatt is a car-free area, so the best way to get into town is to take a train from Visp, Brig or Geneva. If you're driving, you'll have to park at Täsch and then hop on a shuttle bus to take you the 7 kilometres to one of our Zermatt hotels.
