The beauty of Zermatt
And its surrounding area


Every season, the beauty of the nature of the Swiss Alps shows itself in its different facets. Activities around the Matterhorn invite you to discover the surrounding area in an individual way.

High up on the peaks that mean the world to many. In the region around Zermatt there are mountain panoramas galore. Over thirty four-thousand-metre peaks can be reached from here, and the Matterhorn is the most striking of them.

Due to the impressive mountain world and the connection to Italy, winter sports in Zermatt are legendary. Along the 360 kilometers of slopes there are countless excellent restaurants, which invite you to have a break - no matter if you are skiing, snowboarding or on foot. But what many people do not know is that the area also offers skiing fun in summer. The child-friendly Matterhorn glacier paradise is the highest summer ski area in Europe. Besides skiing, snowtubing is also offered at almost 4’000m above sea level.

But you can also enjoy the magic of the winter in Zermatt next to the ski slopes: dog sleigh rides, ice skating, tobogganing, cross-country skiing or a large network of winter hiking trails offer activities for everyone.

Another spot which is worth a visit in any season: The Gornergrat is also a destination for inexperienced alpinists: the viewing platform offers a breathtaking view of the Matterhorn and the entire mountain scenery. It can be reached on foot or with the Gornergrat railroad, which is only 10 minutes away from CERVO.

Anyone who has had enough of the impressive nature will learn everything about the history of the place in the Matterhorn Museum. From the adventurous first ascent of the Matterhorn to its development into a vacation resort, there is a lot to discover.

But also without snow there is a lot to do in Zermatt. In addition to 400km of hiking trails, there is a forest fun park, via ferratas, countless mountains to conquer and in Täsch a golf course and our Schali Lago.
