Zermatt: Selfies as a Jubilee Souvenir


Selfies in Zermatt – that is something very special this summer. At different places, these nostalgic pictures can be taken in an entertaining setting throughout the summer. Take part, post and tell the world how beautiful it is in Zermatt.

The reason for these epochal selfies: In 2015 Zermatt celebrates the first ascent of the Matterhorn 150 years ago. However, selfies have their own set of rules – for example, a head stuck into a round carton hole and laughing out. For example, from the rope team of the first climber of the Matterhorn, Edward Whymper, together with his team. Possible on the Matterhorn Plaza in the centre of Zermatt – always freely accessible and free.

Whymper Pass Selfie

Whoever purchases a Matterhorn Whymper Pass from the Gornergrat Bahn, receives a whole package of experiences. These include a selfie as a mountain climber in clothing from that epoch with the real Matterhorn as the backdrop. The package also includes: souvenir postcard, a welcome drink, and a Whymper plate with Valais specialties.
