Zmutt Culture Trail opens


The Zermatt region has more historic buildings than almost any other. The “Alts Zermatt” association hopes to draw attention to these cultural treasures by linking them on a five-stage cultural trail. The first stage from Zermatt to Zmutt has already been open for almost two years. On 19 June 2021, the second stage will be opened - “Zmutt, oldest hamlet in Switzerland”. The name reveals the location for the new route, comprising 14 stopping points and a total of 13 historic houses - the oldest of which dates back to the 13th century. Information boards provide fascinating facts about the history and cultural background of the buildings and the hamlet. This stage also includes an exhibition in a barn. The project is supported by the Zermatt municipality, the Zermatt Civic Community’s cultural and social foundation, the Cantonal Department of Monument Preservation and Zermatt Tourism.
