Located in southern Switzerland, Zermatt is a popular mountain town in the Canton of Valais. It is situated at the foot of the Matterhorn, one of the Alps' highest peaks. It attracts a large number of tourists for it's activities on offer, such as skiing and mountain climbing, and also for it's resounding beauty in general.
Zermatt is principally a retreat in the Alps. Based just at the foothill of the Matterhorn mountain, Zermatt is one of the favourite weekend spots for the Swiss and outsiders alike. The range of activities in this small town is quite engaging. Activities such as ski trips, mountaineering, mountain biking or even hiking are sure to keep you occupied throughout your stay to this fabulous hill station. And if that's not enough, you can spend a day out shopping and indulge in the local food on the Bahnhofstrasse, it's the main street. The Matterhorn Museum and the Mountaineer's cemetery are also quite popular tourist attractions in the city. The city has no cars, no trains running through it, only electric and solar powered buses, so mostly everyone is either on a bike or on foot. This makes the overall atmosphere of the city quite refreshing and welcoming, not to mention extremely clean and peaceful.
