If you have strong thighs and enough stamina, you shouldn’t miss this descent.. The Matterhorn safari, which an experienced skier can master in one day, offers a wide variety of panoramic views of the ski region.

5) Off-piste activitiesZermatt is the pulsating center in the Mattertal and guarantees versatile après-ski after a day of skiing. In the ski area, after the last descent, you can go to the champagne bar, the Papperla pub or the legendary Hennu stall. In Zermatt itself, around 100 restaurants and 60 bars, pubs and nightspots await those who like to party and night owls.

Exclusive shopping, events and leisure activities such as ice skating, ice stock sport, curling and tobogganing ensure the best entertainment in the afternoon. Numerous winter hiking trails lead to undiscovered hamlets or to sunny viewing terraces above Zermatt. A highlight is the trip to the Gornergrat and the view from there of the Matterhorn. The Gornergratbahn, the highest open-air cog railway in Europe, takes you from Zermatt to the mountain station on Gornergrat at 3,089 m in 33 minutes. There is a fine mountain restaurant and a viewing platform from which you can enjoy a great view of the Matterhorn and the surrounding 4,000m peaks – Enjoying the summit. You can also go snowshoeing on the Gornergrat mountain ridge. Another attraction for the whole family awaits in the mountain: the Glacier Palace. The huge ice cave is located in the Matterhorn glacier paradise ski area directly in the glacier, 15 meters below the surface of the earth. Worth seeing! In the Matterhorn Museum “Zermatlantis” you will also find an interesting exhibition on the first ascent and Zermatt’s local history.

6) Places in the ski areaThe health resort of Zermatt is the centrr of the Matterhorn holiday region that is well worth seeing. Located in the middle of the Valais at an airy 1,620 m altitude, the picturesque mountain village with 5,700 inhabitants exudes a cozy and at the same time sophisticated ambience. Despite the tourism, Zermatt has lost none of its original charm. 500-year-old wooden houses in Valais construction and many winding streets exude a traditional charm. But Zermatt is also modern, cosmopolitan and undisputedly one of the most popular vacation spots in the Swiss mountains. Things are even more rustic in Täsch, which is around 5 km from Zermatt. If you travel to Zermatt, you cannot pass this place, because in Täsch you leave your car in one of the parking garages and continue with the train shuttle. Another 4 km north is Randa, a smaller, cozy village with a relaxed and tradition-conscious atmosphere.

At an altitude of 2,050 m, Cervinia offers everything a vacationer’s heart desires, from WiFi reception to a fitness and wellness centre to the highest museum in Europe. About 6 km from Cervinia is the quiet, tranquil neighboring town of Valtournenche at an altitude of 1,524 m.
