From 2004, a new quarter called Le Petit Village grew up west of the Mürini lane, adjacent to the Ried district on the north-eastern edge of Zermatt. The chalets of Le Petit Village all have garlands of lights hanging from their roof gables, producing a scene on winter nights that seems to have come straight from a fairy tale. About 100 m south-east of the chalets, the footpath linking the Wiesti-Strasse road with the Riedweg path leads along Mürini. From the edge of the forest, walkers enjoy a clear view over the village and up to the Matterhorn – a magnificent vista.
