Switzerland! The name itself evokes images of untouched, pristine snow; and Zermatt is the perfect place for snow lovers to enjoy themselves. At the base of the majestic Matterhorn, this is one of Europe’s high altitude ski area. Zermatt offers ski slopes for beginners and experts, snow covered hiking trails for those looking for a less adrenaline spiking activity, as well as views to blow your mind. Photograph the snow capped mountains to your heart’s content. Tourists love to take the Five Lakes Walk, a theme-based trail that leads past the Stellisee, Grindjisee, Grünsee, Moosjisee and Leisee lakes. There is also the Matterhorn Museum, a place to get into the historical importance of the city, and the Gorner gorge, a rugged beauty interconnected by wooden walkways, to take in.
Finding accommodation here is not a problem at all, with several good resorts and hotels in Zermatt offering a comfortable stay as well as seamless services. The Chalet Banja is quite popular thanks to its scenic location, right among the snow covered slopes, with fantastic panoramic views of the Matterhorn. Another hotel in Zermatt that is all the rage these days is the Chalet Maurice, which is an apartment style hotel. It can accommodate 12 guests in six spacious rooms that are sprawled across three floors. The views are spectacular, as is the attention to detail offered by the hotel staff. Perfect for a cozy family outing or a weekend spent with friends.
