Summer in Zermatt

Summer holidays at the Matterhorn Paradise

The summer holiday of your life! The overwhelming alpine panorama with 38 four-thousand-metre peaks will enchant you. This is fascination. This is tradition. 

In Zermatt, summit experiences and natural wonders await you: touch glaciers, swim in mountain lakes, ski in summer.

Glacier Ride, Gornergrat or Matterhorn Glacier Paradise - you can reach the most impressive peaks of the Alps with the most modern mountain railways. A dream for a family holiday, but also for adventure seekers who want to climb high under their own steam. Enjoy summit culinary delights and Swissness in tradition and culture - in the mountains as well as in the car-free Matterhorn village, the world's largest pedestrian zone with excellent connections to the European rail network.

Biking instead of hiking in Zermatt

Bikers, watch out! Zermatt is also a paradise for those who prefer to explore the Valais mountains on two wheels rather than on foot.

Car-free Zermatt is not just a dream for pedestrians and skiers: get out of the daily routine, get on your bike and enjoy the active recreation that means action and challenge on two wheels! Single trails that take your breath away, enduro & all-mountain experiences - everything is possible on the longest descents in the Alps. Explore the fantastic nature on your own with a rental bike or book bike tours to the most spectacular vantage points of the Valais mountains. With or without motor, but always guaranteed to be addictive.
