Zermatt – Where superlatives come as standard

365 kilometres of runs surrounded by 38 peaks exceeding 4,000m, skiing all year round and lifts up to an altitude of almost 4,000m above sea level – in Zermatt there are superlatives wherever you look! But as soon as you take a seat in the beautiful Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn train and the majestic Matterhorn springs into view, you quickly realise that it’s not just facts and figures that make Zermatt so special. First and foremost, its unique location at the end of the Matter Valley in the south of the Canton of Valais needs to be seen to be believed. The natural beauty is so remarkable here that even the size of the ski area (which extends all the way into Italy’s Aosta Valley) becomes very much secondary. The first impressions of Zermatt are certainly overwhelming and it’s hard to imagine ever getting bored of this huge ski area. Nevertheless, there is always room for improvement, even in the most well-known tourist destinations. We’ve taken a close look at Zermatt in 10 different test categories.

„Zermatt“ – the best you get in the Alps?

And finally: is Zermatt the best resort in the Alps? Well, what can certainly be said is that you’ll hardly find another resort in such a breathtaking surrounding as Zermatt at the “Matterhorn”. The very first ride up hill offers an unforgettable view of what is likely to be among the most impressive mountains in the world, the Matternhorn. On the other hand (ticket-) prices are so high they are unequalled in the Alps. ”Zermatt” however is definitely one of THE TOP resorts worldide. With its 313 (mostly highly demanding) kilometers of slope every skier, no matter which skill level, should be able to have a grand time. Heliskiing is offered only in Zermatt and the freeride options and the “Gravity Park” are definitely amongst the best you can find in Europe. A fun fact which especially snowboarders will be thrilled about. We definitely recommend skilled skiers to visit Zermatt at least once, it's a lifetime experience! And then decide for yourself whether you think it is the best resort in the Alps. To fully savour the wonderful resort “Zermatt” you’ll have to spend several days there.
