July - September: Meet the Sheep

Who doesn't know them, the black-nosed sheep from Zermatt? Their spiral horns, their black spots and especially their fur are unique.

Highlight: 5 Lakes Hike

The path leads past the lakes of the Stellisee, Grindjisee, Grünsee, Moosjisee and Leisee. Each of these mountain lakes is very different in terms of shape, colour, character and size, and has its own special attraction. The Leisee is good for swimming: children love it. The Grünsee looks out over a rather more rugged landscape, where Swiss stone pines nevertheless manage to grow among the scree and sand. The shores of the Grindjisee are home to rare flowers. And so on – each one promises a unique experience.

* Appropriate for children from age 6
* Reflection of Matterhorn in Stellisee, Grindjisee and Leisee lakes
* Findeln Glacier moraine
* Swimming in the Leisee and Grünsee lakes
* Children’s playground at Leisee, good picnic site

Mountainbike Hotspots

Action auf dem Bike – die sieht für jeden Biker anders aus. Für die einen ist es die erste Abfahrt, für die anderen ist es der Trail durch hochalpine Landschaften oder die waghalsige Passage entlang eines schmalen Grates. Weil in Zermatt ein jeder Biker willkommen ist, gibt es auch für jedes Biker-Bedürfnis den passenden Trail.
