Description Suggest change

Home to the most famous Swiss (and likely in the world) mountain, the Matterhorn, Zermatt sits at the southern end of the Mattertal (Mattervalley). Zermatt contains many high-end ski resorts, but is loved and used by climbers, mountaineers, bikers, skiers, hikers, via-ferraters, paragliders, and just plain tourists.

All sorts of climbing are possible around Zermatt:
-mountaineering on the Matterhorn, Breithorn, or any of the other peaks and ridges in the area
-multipitch climbing
-single-pitch cragging
-bouldering
-ice climbing
-via ferrata

Getting There Suggest change

By train, take a train to Zermatt station. Hard to mess up - follow the tourists.

By car, drive to Taesch, then transfer to a train up to Zermatt (no cars are allowed in Zermatt - with a few exceptions for locals. But if you were a local, you wouldn't be reading this).
