Zermatt, Switzerland

Zermatt lies on the Italian border of the canton of Valais in the west of Switzerland. Almost one-third of the 4,000-metre mountains in the Alps are grouped around this word-famous health resort. The city lies at the foot of the Matterhorn, the most photographed mountain in the world.

The hotels and restaurants are world-class, and the ski area is not only the highest in the Alps – it is also one of the best developed and most convenient in the world, ensuring thrilling sporting experiences on the steepest slopes in the world – and that 365 days a year.

The climate is of an excellent quality: with 300 sunny days a year, there is less rainfall than anywhere else in Switzerland. The air in Zermatt is clear, dry and clean because cars are not allowed to operate in the village.
