The new legend trail along the mystical lakes of Zermatt gives an insight into the region’s ancient tradition. Myths and legends evolve through stories passed down from one generation to the next. Usually there is a religious or tradition-bound core to each story. Zermatt with its quaint habitants, sweeping valleys, lively customs and eventful history offers abundant material for eerie, amusing and tragic sagas. Some of these sagas can be discovered on the new saga trail along the 5 mountain lakes surrounded by Zermatt’s grand mountain world.
