About The Matterhorn, Zermatt

Once you see the Matterhorn, don’t be surprised if you feel like you’ve seen it somewhere before. The shining glory of Switzerland, the Matterhorn is featured on the logo of the beloved chocolate brand, Toblerone. Right dubbed as the symbol of Switzerland, the Matterhorn is one of the most beautiful sights you’ll ever set your eyes on!

The most photographed mountain of the world, the Matterhorn seems like a jagged rock tooth, standing tall, proud and alone! The closest you can get to the Matterhorn is from the Klein Matterhorn, which is accessible by cable car and a funicular. If you do however, wish to scale the mountain, you need to be in top physical shape as it’s not going to be an easy climb.

The Matterhorn, Zermatt Reviews

  • It is rightly said, jewels of the Alps are in Switzerland. Absolutely majestic are the Zermatt and the Matterhorn, mother Nature has been too generous. There is such magic here that even simplest of wooden structures in Zermatt appear to be straight out of heaven. I am not a hiker and had to take cable car for a close approach to Matterhorn, even that experience was amazing in all sorts. I was there for just one day, next time if I go I shall try and stay for a few days at least, the fresh air the purity of nature absolutely clears mind and reaches to the soul.

  • Amazing hike up to the base camp Hornli Hut filled with challenging areas and beautiful views. The best part is that there is a cafe at the base camp where you can refill before you head back down! This is a must do for any hiking enthusiast.

  • Most amazing part of the Swiss Alps is around this iconic mountain. To get there isn't cheap (think 100 euro per person) but definately worth it. Excellent hiking.

  • One of the most beautiful place in the world. My favorite! No other words...

  • Fastest way to the top! Thanks Air Zermatt
