The Place:
Zermatt is surrounded by a range of fabulous mountains, among which the highest of Switzerland: Monte Rosa, but it is famous for the Matterhorn. It was one of the last alpine mountains to be conquered (in 1865), and the first expedition that reached the top ended dramatically (only 3 of the 7 climbers survived).
If you've never experienced a car-free city of any size then Zermatt could be a bit of a surprise: during the high season nearly 20,000 people living in a town with only 5 or 6 streets and more significantly almost no internal combustion vehicles except very occasional outside delivery and specialist services. This means that you can leave a noisy bar or party, and a few minutes later on foot find yourself in utter tranquility. You can sit on the hotel balcony and listen to dozens of varieties of songbirds while watching the sun set on one of the most striking mountains in the western world. Wake up with the sun in a four or five-star room or a canvas tent to the sound of the aforementioned birds, crickets, church bells, and children's laughter.
Simply stunning is the word: The experience of visiting this place is likely to last with you for a very long time!
Get To:
Probably the best way to reach Zermatt is by train, since you won't be able to drive once you get there anyway. Around half of the trains are operated by a private company, but the tickets are available through the Swiss Federal Railway. Experience an unforgettable journey while traveling on the Glacier Express from Chur to Zermatt

What to Do (Jun-Aug Summer):
Zermatt is perhaps even more stunning in the summer than the winter. The spectacular Matterhorn, set against lush green fields and wild flowers, is one of the Alps' most breathtaking views. Warm sunny days play host to a huge variety of activities: tee off at the Randa-Täsch golf club, explore over 400km of walking trails, or why not have a go at hang-gliding, paragliding or mountaineering? If skiing remains your preferred activity, the glacier is open and the sunny days are ideal for small children to learn in. There are 7 lifts and 21 km of well-marked and safe runs – the largest summer skiing area in Europe.

For the less energetic, the Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn and Rothorn lifts are the best way to appreciate the world-class vistas. From Gornergrat, 29 of Switzerland's 35 highest summits can be seen, and under the Klein Matterhorn a blue glacier grotto with ice sculptures is well worth a visit. We recommend a sunrise excursion up to Gornergrat, where you will see the first rays of the day gradually warm the mountains, or a trip up the Matterhorn Express to the lake at Schwarzsee. Afterwards, relax in one of the many superb mountain restaurants that offers world class cuisine and is set against an idyllic background. The Zum Zee in particular should not be missed.

What to do; (Sep-May Winter):
Dominated by Switzerland's most famous landmark - the Matterhorn - Zermatt is certainly the country's best all-round ski resort. Moreover, there are many who would have no hesitation in naming Zermatt as the Best Ski Resort in the World. Partly thanks to the sublime beauty of the Matterhorn, but also thanks to the lack of cars and the resort's great sense of tradition, Zermatt has a special, alluring atmosphere which draws visitors back time and time again. Even if you are not a skier, just walking on the snow covered roads or going around in a horse carriage or a spa looking onto to Mt Matterhorn would result in an incredible experience. Never for one moment think that Zermatt during winter is only for skiers. There are plenty of activities such as 38 mountain restaurants, dozens of village bars & nightclubs, 100 restaurants , 30 kms of winter walking path for non skiers, scenic helicopter flights, paragliding school and tandem 'taxi' flights
