Zermatt loves it when families with children come to visit. Variety, playing, fun and lots of exercise in a healthy alpine air are the programme here.

Children get their money’s worth in Zermatt, because this village has earned the “Families Welcome” seal of approval. Reasonable prices on the mountain lifts and much more. This translates into a zest for life in the village and in the mountains. And don’t forget: there are times when children get a visit from Wolli, the young black-nosed sheep.
