Matterhorn Glacier Paradise – Experience a Day of Fascinating Contrasts with the highest-altitude Cable Car in Europe In a single day, you can experience idyllic high-alpine mountain meadows, spontaneous snowball fights, impressive glacier formations, breathtaking panoramas and mystic mountain lakes, all with a view of the majestic Matterhorn. With the Matterhorn Express, you can travel directly from Zermatt, via Schwarzsee, high up to Trockener Steg. From the aerial cable car, you can observe the antics of the marmots, the graceful chamois and the Matterhorn from various viewpoints directly below the imposing East Face. During the trip you'll hear interesting background information (see offer on page 93). At Trockener Steg, you can board the highest cable car in Europe and glide over the glacier fields towards the Matterhorn glacier paradise, which is situated 3,883 m a.s.l. A summit full of superlatives awaits you here: the newly refurbished restaurant with its Peak Shop and Lodge was converted to Minergie-P standards. A fine example of a sustainable building. The impressive structure won both the Swiss and and the European Solar Prize 2010. The building is home to Europe’s highest seminar room, which can accommodate up to 70 people, and the Matterhorn glacier paradise Lodge for overnight stays at nearly 4,000 m a.s.l. Matterhorn Peak Shop and restaurant in shiny new look as of 15 December 2013. Passenger lifts take you to the panorama platform with a stunning view of 38 four-thousand metre summits and the mystic Glacier Palace 15 m below the surface of the ice. You feel close to heaven at 3,883 m a.s.l, and can enjoy a view over the French, Swiss and Italian 4,000-metre mountains. A panorama window has also been cut into the rock in the middle of the mountain facing in the direction of the Breithorn. You can watch mountaineers, the circling jackdaws, and the precipices of the Theodul glacier. Take a unique souvenir photo at this interesting Matterhorn photo point. As of summer 2014, a new exciting addition will top off the summit experience at the Matterhorn glacier paradise: cinema with a twist. During the summer months, you can engage in a very special activity: snow-tubing. Grab an inflated tyre and down you go!


Day Trip Destinations

Gornergrat – the matterhorn railway – Experience the Climate For anyone who would like to experience the most beautiful part of the alpine world surrounding Zermatt, it will quickly become clear that Gornergrat mustn’t be missed. With its sunny viewing platform which can be reached all year round, the Gornergrat ranks among one of the top tourist destinations, not only because of its altitude. Surrounded by 29 ‘four-thousanders’», the largest Swiss mountain and third-longest glacier in the Alps, the Gornergrat offers a panoramic view of the mountains that couldn’t be more breath-taking and the ‘Matterhorn Railway’ brings you right up close. The highest open-air cogwheel railway in Europe begins in the centre of Zermatt. From there the train climbs the 3,089 metre high Gornergrat in 24-minutes intervals every day. Awaiting guests at the top is the highest hotel in the Swiss Alps (3,100 m) with sun terrace, viewing platform, restaurants and shopping opportunities. On the Gornergrat, guests can learn more about the climate with the Climate Audio Trail (Klimahörpfad) and the ‘Wolli and the Climate Detectives’. With the Wolli and the Climate Detectives offer, families (with children from the age of 6 years) can solve 7 climate riddles. At the end a small present awaits the junior detectives. Working together with myclimate, the Gornergrat Bahn offers a unique experience with the Climate Audio Trail. The audio roundtrip, with 9 five-minute climate stories, leads you into another time, another climate and into another geography.

Rothorn – the View of all Views On Rothorn, 3,103 m a.s.l, you get a classic ‘Toblerone’ view of the Matterhorn. We hope you haven’t forgotten to bring your camera, because you can see the mountain landscape from the Dufourspitze to the Weisshorn, with the imposing Matterhorn right in the middle. A special attraction here is the ‘Peak Collection’ outdoor exhibition around the cosy restaurant Rothorn. Discover the Theme Trails about marmots, alpine flora and the mountain world of Zermatt.


7

Schwarzsee – where the Matterhorn seems close enough to touch The water of the lake Schwarzsee is crystal-clear and ethereally beautiful, and the restaurant Schwarzsee invites you to stop for a while. The idyllic ‘Maria zum Schnee’ chapel is perfectly reflected on the surface of the lake. In only 12 minutes, you can travel from the valley station to the foot of the Matterhorn with the Matterhorn Express. On interactive theme paths with stories about the Matterhorn, as well as on the Matterhorn glacier trail, you can learn many interesting facts about the unique world of the glaciers. Zermatt Bergbahnen AG is setting standards in the field of sustainability: attractively-designed ‘sustainability’ gondolas on the Matterhorn Express from Zermatt via Schwarzsee to Trockener Steg. Inside you’ll find information on the extensive environmental projects of the Zermatt Bergbahnen AG.

Sunnegga – the Paradise for Families From Zermatt, you can reach Sunnegga (2,288 m) in only 4 ½ minutes with the new underground funicular railway. From the cosy restaurant's spacious sun terrace, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Matterhorn. From here, you are also just a few minutes walk from the marmot observation post or from the idyllic lake Leisee. The Leisee playground provides fireplaces, a raft and many other exciting attractions for children.

Wolli and the Climate Detectives – Gornergrat The ‘ Wolli and the Climate Detectives’ adventure starts at Zermatt Tourism, where the climate detectives are fitted out with an audio guide, binoculars and a map. The audio stories are combined with a journey on the Gornergrat railway up to the Gornergrat, and then with an exciting, entertaining and educational walk through the Zermatt world of mountains and glaciers. The audio adventure starts during the journey to the Gornergrat. The children get to know Wolli, the black-nose sheep, and learn about the disappearance of the glacier fleas. Once introduced to this tricky case, the fledgling climate detectives can already solve the first riddle while still in the train. On the observation platform of the Gornergrat, they can enjoy the stunning view, marvel at the Monte Rosa Cabin and meet Wolli’s girlfriend, the alpine chough (Alpendohle), who will pose another riddle. On the easy, approx. 1½ hour walk from the Rotenboden Station to the Riffelberg Station, the climate detectives can also get know more of Wolli’s friends, each of whom will provide them with a further riddle. Will the young climate detectives succeed in solving the seven riddles and thereby the case of the vanished glacier fleas? They will find out when they return to Zermatt Tourism and try to open the treasure chest with the code they have deduced. The right code will open the treasure chest, and rewards the children with a Wolli surprise package.

Hiking Rules 1. Plan every hike in the mountains carefully and make sure it is suitable for your physical condition and the time of year. 2. The weather can change quickly in the mountains, so always take a warm sweater and windcheater with you. 3. Wear hiking boots and take enough food and drink with you. 4. Do not go alone. Let other people know where you are planning to hike and inform them when you arrive back. 5. Observe changes in the weather and turn back in good time in the case of doubtful weather. 6. Do not set foot on a glacier or leave the marked hiking paths without a mountain guide. 7. Walking on the ski slopes is forbidden. 8. Do not harm plants and animals. 9. Never walk straight through forests or across fields; always use existing roads and paths. 10. Be courteous to other hikers and pedestrians. 11. Always close gates and fences behind you.

27 Where the Inhabitants of the Alps blessed Animals and 22 26 26 24 28 Fields 23 27 Over a dozen chapels 27 and places of25 29worship around Zermatt bear 24 28 witness to the piety of28the local people in earlier times. Many 26 30 th 25 families lived nomadic29 lives until 27 the 20 century: they lived in 29 31 various hamlets in the area around Zermatt26during the summer, 30 30 28 32 and returned to the village when winter arrived. It is therefore no 27 31 31 29 33 surprise that each community built their own chapel to be nearer 28 32 32 34together or alone. The history to God at a place of worship, either30 29 33 31 35 and information about33the individual chapels can be found on the 30 34 www.zermatt.ch/kapellen internet: 34 32 36 31

What actually is ‘Best of the Alps’?

127

What actually is ‘Best of the Alps’? Twelve classic Alpine resorts have joined forces to establish the ‘Best of the Alps’ group. Twelve resorts, all of them bearing a resounding name. All of them well known as established tourist destinations. Popular because of the way their infrastructure has evolved, their close, because of their natural relationship to the surrounding areas, the perfect mixture between established tradition and carefully nurtured progress. They comprise Chamonix Mont-Blanc, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Davos, Garmisch-Partenkirchen,Grindelwald, Kitzbühel, Lech Zürs am Arlberg, Megève, St. Anton am Arlberg, St. Moritz, Seefeld and Zermatt. They represent the most prestigious winter sports and summer holiday destinations in the Big Five of Europe’s Alpine countries. What’s more, they are market leaders in the fields of holidays and leisure, with all of them holding out the guarantee of top quality. And they also regard themselves as ambassadors for the entire Alpine region: twelve tremendous, internationally well known and popular places, all with the same good fortune of being located in one of the world’s most breathtakingly gorgeous landscapes.

What’s the idea behind ‘Best of the Alps’? ‘Best of the Alps’ is the brand name for the great tradition of hospitality offered by Alpine resorts considered pioneers in the fields of skiing and mountaineering holidays. They all share one unique quality. The uniqueness of the mountains and beauty of the landscapes has been superbly blended into the requirements of modern, activity-based holidaymaking. But they’re also regarded as the ‘Best of the Alps’ due to their outstanding transport connections, the diversity of the culture waiting to be explored, and not least because of the almost mythical fame of their mountain ranges, such as the Matterhorn, the Dolomites and Mont Blanc massif, to name but a few. And, of course, it goes without saying: these holiday resorts offer an enormous range of hotel accommodations from the highest to most modest of categories, as well as a spectrum of culinary delights that ranges from the exquisitely regional to top-class international delights.
