King of the Swiss Alps, the colossal The Matterhorn rises above the picturesque resort town of Zermatt, on the border between Switzerland and Italy. The mountain's summit is 4,478 m (14,692 ft) high, its four steep faces soaring above the surrounding glaciers and facing the four points of the compass. First ascended in 1865 by a team of alpinists led by English mountaineer Edward Whymper, the pyramid-shaped mountain continues to draw ambitious climbers from around the globe. Less audacious visitors can still access sweeping views of the scenery by taking an aerial cable car departing from Zermatt up to a dizzying height of about 3,800 m (12,500 ft). With our international travel planner, Zermatt attractions like The Matterhorn can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Fantastic view of most of the year around snowed top of mountain. It’s amazing even viewed at the bottom of the mountain. The view of the city at night is heart-melted.
I Just Climbed this Iconic Mountain. It’s a Amazing Climbing up and Down takes similar time. Hike from Zermatt to Hörnlihütte is also very Advance and Beautiful. People wo don’t want to walk all the way to Hörnlihütte can take a Cabelcar to Schwarzsee then 3 hrs hike. Amazing enjoy
