Zermatt: Authenticity, Customs & Tradition

Zermatt – this is the village full of experiences, allowing guests to participate in local and Swiss tradition. With impressions from the world of alpinism, agriculture and customs.

It’s the mountains that shape the history of the inhabitants of Zermatt. A history that begins with the struggle against overpowering nature: farmers who strive to glean from the steep slopes and short summers what is necessary for survival in the harsh winter months. It’s the story of the tourism pioneers, who recognise the potential of the beauty of the mountains and their powers of attraction. They embody a unique form of hospitality towards visitors from near and far that continues today.

The history of the Zermatters is tangible. It manifests itself through customs preserved to this day. It pervades all the activities on offer.
