Matterhorn is the most beautiful mountain in Switzerland and a sign of the famous holiday destination — Zermatt. The characteristic shape of the Matterhorn inspired Swiss Toblerone chocolate. A rack railway connects Zermatt with Gornergrat. It’s the perfect place for a photo session of the Matterhorn and the glaciers. There is also the highest above sea level hotel in Switzerland — Kulmhotel Gornergrat. The Gornergrat train travels along a scenic route and is an exciting experience in itself. If that’s not enough, take a ride to the highest cable car station in Europe (3.883 m) — Matterhorn glacier paradise. Zermatt, like Saas-Fee, is a combustion-engine car free town, so clean mountain air is guaranteed. For shopping fans, the main street Zermatt offers all major Swiss brands and local products — cheese, dry meat, special sorts of bread and fine wines.
