Zermatt: Village

A resort that seems to have it all - an iconic mountain, a vast, high-altitude ski area that offers year-round skiing, excellent dining on and off the mountain, a pretty, car-free village and a good party scene.

As you stand on the snowy, bustling square outside Zermatt's train station, staring open-mouthed at the Matterhorn towering above the village, you know you're in for a treat. Zermatt fully deserves its status as one of the world's best winter resorts, combining excellent, mixed-ability skiing on high, snow-sure slopes with breathtakingly beautiful scenery, a traditional village, some of the world's best altitude dining and good nightlife. You won't save money or lose weight if you come here but you will have a fantastic winter experience.
