Welcome to the top of the world! Or at least, the summit of the top of the world. Zermatt, nestled at the base of the world famous Matterhorn peak is a resort town with an extravagant feel and rich history. It began as quiet holiday spot for the British who sought fresh mountain air and hiking opportunities and shot to stardom in the mid 1800s when the mountaineer and explorer, Sir Edward Whymper, attempted and successfully achieved reaching the summit of the massive Matterhorn.
If your Time & Place vacation goals don’t include climbing intimidating peaks, have no fear; Zermatt offers plenty of activities year round for both the amateur and professional outdoor enthusiast. Where else can you ski into the spring and summer months? With snowfall nearly year-round, Zermatt offers excellent skiing no matter the season. During the winter you’ll be hard pressed to find other mountain that offers this caliber of skiing, with a range of gently sloping runs and those that only experts should attempt. Summer months bring sunshine and many trails for hiking and biking, as well as those that lead to rock climbing areas or fly fishing spots. Adventure seems to be around every turn, just waiting to be discovered. Zermatt is car-free so enjoy strolling around the town and taking the beauty around you.
Regardless of the season there’s one thing about Zermatt that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The stunning panoramic views of the highest peaks in Switzerland peer down at you from their breathtaking heights. Nowhere else will you find this unique combination of a quaint, yet glamorous village, paired with spectacular scenery, brought to you by Time & Place.
