Zermatt is a scenic ski resort, located at the northern base of the mighty Matterhorn. This famed mountain is what bought us to Zermatt for three nights - not for skiing, but just to see her, and explore the surrounding area.

The town of Zermatt is filled with hotels and restaurants and tourists. Visiting in summer it was a busy place, and I am sure things just get more so in winter.

Zermatt was the highlight of our week in Switzerland in July 2008, and it has given me a taste for some mountain based holidays in the future.

    Hi Sue, now that I've broadband I can start looking at great VT pages again! Fantastic tips here and I love all the pics of the Matterhorn.

    Great that you could have lunch in the dining car of the Glacier Express. I love dining cars and try to eat there at every opportunity, but that sounds especially fine. Great also that you found an exact replica of your Grandmother's music box.

    Great Matterhorn pics ;-) Seems you enjoy your sunny Zermatt stay. Can't wait this winter to go skiing there.

    Stunning view and excellent tips! If this is what you produce when not really in the mood, I'm even more impressed ;-)

    Brilliant photos here. Things are not moving slower because you were in the mountains, but just because you were in Switzerland. Hiking steep downwards can be much more exhausting than upwards. No, I can't see a man above the cable car. :-)
