What is the attraction to Zermatt that draws everyone here for skiing? Is it the view of the highest ski resort? Is it the picturesque chocolate-box village? Maybe it is the Matterhorn and all the other peaks that bring visitors to Zermatt ski resorts.
If you’re planning on a vacation in Switzerland next year, now is the time to start planning! Zermatt hotels get booked up quick during winter holidays because everyone that skies know, this is THE place to go. If you’ve never been, maybe you’re wondering why?
Valais canton is in southern Switzerland and that is where you’ll find a top vacation destination – Zermatt. The Matterhorn peak is approximately 1600m above, with its iconic shadow beaconing those below to come climb, hike, or ski.
While many do just that, just as many stay in town, and enjoy the many boutiques and restaurants, all within walking distance of the hotels. Other partakes in curling or skating in the public outdoor rinks. Then, at the end of any given day, whether they were part of the Zermatt ski scene, hung out around the skating rinks, or those choose to stay and dine, shop, and visit, they all enjoy a lively après-ski scene.
