Surrounded by the fabulous range of high inclined mountains, Zermatt is the place, most travelled by the hikers and skiers. Although it is a wonderland to spend quality time with yourself and your loved ones. The mountain peaks are so high that only 3 hikers could survive out of 7 who tried to climb. During the comfortable weather conditions, there is no noise and very fewer people you would find in the whole city. It should be kept in mind that the town is not so big to be travelled at all. The whole city is just comprised of the 5-6 house lanes where almost 20,000 people stay and no vehicle could be seen during in the city. If you want to experience the complete silence in the whole city just take yourself out of any bar or pub and you will feel the extreme silence because most of the people would keep themselves busy in the hotels and restaurants. A few places to be cherished in Zermatt have been described as:
Matterhorn Museum: The Matterhorn Museum is not the usual museums in the world because it is not constructed the way others museums are constructed in the world. It is a cultured focused natural museum made up in natural conditions and in the form of a village as well. The whole museum consists of fourteen houses, a church, a hotel, few huts and granaries too which are however related to the development and history of the city, Zermatt. It’s an amazing place to travel at least once.
Sunnegga: The station Sunnegga is almost 5 minutes distanced through railway or at 10 minutes walking distance from Zermatt railway station. Tourists love to travel through Sunnegga to cherish the beauty of Matterhorn. This funicular station has been made under the mountains and reconstructed after the earthquake held in the country. An adventurous place fully covered with the natural surprises is worth to travel for every tourist landed in the city.
Ricola Herb Garden: Surrounded by the beautiful mountains in Matterhorn, there is a small place named as Ricola herb Garden. It cannot be an amusement trip only there but it is more educational. You would learn about the thirteen most important herbs which definitely cure you in every situation and important for the living too. It has been made very beautiful and preserved enthusiastically by the authority.
Matterhorn Glacier Paradise: Of course, without any doubt, it can be believed that the beauty of Zermatt from the Sunnegga is remarkable but the view of the Matterhorn’s highest mountains from the cable cars of 14 amazing glaciers and 38 mountain peaks is just spectacular. The glacier palace here is not the site to miss at all. A chilled experience to have once in Matterhorn, Zermatt.
