Zermatt is proud of its Old Village, home to more than 30 buildings constructed in the traditional style of the barns and stores of the upper Valais. Many sit on flat stone slabs balanced on stilts to keep out mice. Wonderful for photographers!
Täschalp, with its chapel, offers a rewarding excursion destination in summer. The alpine pastures are located in a high mountain valley at an altitude of 2,210 m. Both the chapel and the nearby cheese dairy are well worth a visit.
