In July 1871, the British woman Lucy Walker became the first woman to climb the Matterhorn. In a tweed skirt, too. It’s an achievement we are now celebrating, 150 years later.
In the week from 19 to 25 July 2021, Zermatt will host an anniversary week in her honour. Various events are planned including an “Abusizz” at the Hotel Monte Rosa, a Lucy Walker village tour or themed hikes. The celebration will continue beyond the anniversary week, with events available to book during the entire summer and autumn season.
