Men got there first. But women are catching up fast. In 1871, six years after the first ascent, 34-year old Lucy Walker was the first woman to reach the summit of the Matterhorn. The ‘Matterhorn Ladies’ exhibition tells the story of fourteen Matterhorn pioneers from Switzerland, Italy, England, Belgium, France, the US and Japan. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Swiss Alpine Museum in Bern, the Gornergrat Bahn and the Zermatt community.
