Your travel guide to Zermatt
Thoughts of Switzerland often conjure up majestic images of the Swiss Alps, luxurious spas and hidden restaurants with the best gourmet cuisine possible. This image is on point, especially for the Swiss town of Zermatt. Zermatt features the world-famous Matterhorn mountain, which overlooks the town and Swiss Alps.
Sunnegga Paradise is the best place for families to go skiing and find skiing lessons for the little ones. A self-service restaurant can also be found at Sunnegga Paradise, and it offers incredible views of the Matterhorne. There are four hills for skiing at Sunnegga Paradise, and the valley also is the one that attracts the most sun. At the Matterhorn Museum in downtown Zermatt, travelers can learn about the history of climbing.
Travelers should be aware that Zermatt is car-free, and this contributes to the fresh and crisp environment of the downtown area. Because the downtown area is very small, it is easy for travelers to walk to their destinations. The entire downtown area involves a twenty-minute walk at most to any destination that can be found in Zermatt. Some solar powered buses can be found downtown, but travelers should not heavily depend on these buses during their stay.
Downtown Zermatt offers an incredible selection of charming shops and boutiques. It is particularly known for its perfumeries, such as Apotheke Internationale, Müller Drogeriemarkt and the Hot Price Shop. For those looking to splurge on some quality jewelry during their stay, the Haute Horlogerie Schindler S.A., Chronometrie Stäuble S.A., Raschlé Robert and Jacot Time SA are the best jewelry stores to peruse. Elle et Lui, Jasmin and Lorenz Bach are all apparel stores that feature designer clothing, accessories and other goods.
