Mountains & Glaciers


The idyllic mountain village Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn has turned into a popular summer and winter health resort. There are no motor vehicles in Zermatt. Apart from the electric cars, horse sleighs and carriages are the only allowed means of transportation.

It’s the landmark of Switzerland, the most beautiful mountain in the world. The Matterhorn (4478 meters above sea level) is the most photographed mountain in the world and no other summit compares to this one, say alpine climbers.
