The excursion mountains around Zermatt offer breath-taking views. Always in focus: the Matterhorn, the mightiest four thousand-metre peak in the Alps.


The excursion mountains beckon: Gornergrat (3,089 m), Matterhorn glacier paradise (3,883 m), and Rothorn (3,103 m). On all of these peaks as well as on the way to each and at each of the stops in between, the mountain panorama presents itself in a breath-taking display. For example, the Matterhorn from its very different and most beautiful sides.


Gornergrat

The Gornergrat (3,089 m) is one of those places that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime. The mountain panorama and the glorious view of the Matterhorn are unforgettable.
