Zermatt is renowned for being a lively and vibrant resort, located at the foot of the Matterhorn, with a fantastic skiing atmosphere. This resort has exceptional panoramic views with a diverse aprés-ski that is bound to entertain you. This is a mountain village filled with electric taxis, horse-drawn carriages and roads filled with beautiful little boutiques. Why not ski the Klein? One of the Europe's longest slopes (13km) that starts at the incredible height of 3820m! The aprés-ski is just as extraordinary as the skiing itself, with around three dozen mountain restaurants, each with a sublime view of the majestic Matterhorn. You must also taste the exquisite Swiss gastronomy within its numerous authentic chalets. You ski right up to your chalet door and within minutes be sipping on a nice hot cup of Glüwein (spiced warm wine) with a slice of homemade Apfestrudel (local apple pie), all followed by a moon lit ski descent before experiencing the vibrant nightlife!
