  • You can also walk through the Hinterdorfstrasse when you are shopping in Zermatt. It is really special to experience the transition from the luxury and bustle to the peace and simplicity. It takes you only 10 minutes.

  • You can see the Matterhorn of the Cape from anywhere in the city. The building in the town is a wooden building which seems to be Switzerland, and is a curious thing just by walking.
