As the sightseeing base for the Matterhorn, the symbol of the Alps with its sharp and majestic rock peaks, it attracts travelers from all over the world on a daily basis. Despite being a major tourist destination, Zermatt's clean air and quaint old-fashioned houses make it an attractive place not only to rest between hikes and skiing, but also to take a leisurely stroll around the town.
Located on the border between Switzerland and Italy, the 4,478-meter-high Matterhorn is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Alps.
