Zermatt lies at the foot of the spellbinding Matterhorn, at an altitude of 1608 meters above sea level. In summer, the awesome mountain landscape invites you to hike, bike, climb or take a high mountain tour. On the Theodul Glacier, you'll also find a summer skiing area and the Matterhorn Glacier Express that takes you to a viewing platform at 3883 meters above sea level. With guaranteed snow, the skiing area offers plenty of pistes and options for freeriders in winter. The Gornergrat Railway, the Matterhorn Museum and the Gorner Gorge make equally memorable outings.
