Zermatt Tourism

One of the most attractive and expensive Alpine resorts in Switzerland, the tiny, vibrant town of Zermatt is a favourite amongst adventure and sports lovers. Located in the Valais Canton at an altitude of 1600 metres, it is best known as a launchpad for skiing and mountaineering. The city is also popular for the Matterhorn, a breath-taking mountain towering over Zermatt. The name of Zermatt is derived from “alpine meadows”, or “matten” (in German), in the valley.
