Once you arrive at Zermatt, trade your Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for a horse-drawn sleigh, the preferred mode of transportation for locals and visitors alike. Stroll along the Bahnhofstrasse, Zermatt’s main street, lined with upscale boutiques, luxury hotels and a vibrant après-ski scene.
With 29 mountains soaring over 4000m, 9 of the 10 highest mountains in Europe, the longest winter skiing season in Europe and the largest summer skiing area in the Alps, Zermatt attracts mountain lovers from all over the world who enjoy this quaint village of cobbled streets that offers a traditional feel and all the amenities of a truly cosmopolitan city, with gourmet restaurants, elegant shops and top-rated hotels.
Be dazzled by the captivating scenery of the white imposing mountains as you make your way up in the cable car, dangling over cliff faces thousands of feet above the snow. Once you get your skis on the ground, the real action begins. Ski or snowboard down long slopes of perfect snow, like the 13km Klein Matterhorn, the highest lift in Europe. Step out of a tunnel blasted through the rock, and comes upon a vast white glacial world on your way down to Zermatt.
Enjoy the winter holiday of a lifetime when you visit Zermatt. Hire a Jeep at the Geneva or Zurich Airports and get ready to face the snow.
