The Matterhorn and Gornergratbahn - Wikimedia by Kabelleger
Zermatt is one of Switzerland's heavy hitters in all respects - an awesome ski area, fantastic resort centre, iconic setting, best food in the Alps and, unfortunately, prices to match !
Zermatt is of course best known for the mountain that dominates over the village and everything else nearby - the Matterhorn.
Yes, the world's most iconic, pyramid-shaped mountain stands high above the end of the valley, straddling the border between Switzerland and Italy. It's literally everywhere you look, not just out on the slopes but referenced on nearly everything - souvenirs, postcards, shops, hotels, bars etc. And why not !?! If you've got a mountain on your doorstep that looks that impressive then you make the most of it...
