This is a pleasant walk to get your hiking juices flowing, especially if you arrived in the afternoon and want to enjoy a couple of hours on the trails. Walk towards the Matterhorn and follow the signs to small hamlet of Z'mutt. Walking time is 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your level of fitness and how often you stop to take pictures. (Note: If you're not used to hiking, or if you aren't used to the altitude yet, there are some moderately steep uphill climbs. Don't be ashamed to turn back.)

Z'mutt itself is just a collection of farmhouses, really. There are two restaurants that open sporadically for lunch and/or dinner, and I think there are a few basic rooms available for tourists during the summer. In this case, one can say that it is about the trip, not the destination.

Address: Zermatt Tourism, Bahnhofplatz, CH-3920 Zermatt
Directions: Follow Bahnhofstrasse (walk towards the Matterhorn) as it becomes Oberdorfstrasse. Continue to the edge of town, then follow the signs to Z'mutt.
