Photopoints in the village


Old part of the village

freely accessible / always open

Zermatt is proud of its Old Village, home to more than 30 buildings constructed in the traditional style of the barns and stores of the upper Valais. Many sit on flat stone slabs balanced on stilts to keep out mice. Wonderful for photographers!

Photopoint Randa rockslide

The triple rockslide at Randa took place in 1991. Boulders as big as houses are visible today scattered across the enormous cone of rock debris. In the meantime, larches, the pioneer trees of the Alps, have been steadily colonising the terrain.

One of the finest settings for photographing the Matterhorn at its best shortly before nightfall. The terrace offers the ideal view as the Matterhorn bids good night to the village.

Anyone following the road from the Winkelmatten district towards Furi sees the lush green forest, the blue sky and suddenly, between them, the most famous mountain pinnacle in the world: the Matterhorn.
