Light is hope! In this sense, the Matterhorn is illuminated during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Due to the current moon position, the projections are weakened. They currently take place daily between 04:00 hrs and 06:00 hrs.

With this light projection, Zermatt wants to give people a sign of hope and solidarity in these difficult times. The village shows solidarity with all the people who are currently suffering and is grateful to all those who are helping to overcome the crisis.

Stay at home - you can follow the spectacle live via webcams.

In Zermatt lives the biggest Portuguese community outside Portugal. Many helping hands, without which Zermatt would not be what it is today. Many of them have remained here despite the coronavirus pandemic - over 1'000 km separated from their families. We thank them and we think of them.
