Admire one of the most beautiful summits of the world


With only 3 hours scenic train ride and 2 trains change in Bern and Visp, you will visit famous Zermatt where you can reward yourself with shopping and/or with delicious food in one of the endless restaurants.
The walk through the small town is rewarding and you get a good view of Matterhorn. Very Special is the old part of Zermatt with "Heidi-style" houses.
A must-see is also the cemetery for alpinists and having seen the graves of young People you may be happy to see Matterhorn only from the distance. Several gondolas lead you to the upper part of the valley with lakes and even better views of Matterhorn. There is a real carusell of gondolas and we can decide where we go according to weather, season and as you like it. On the way back you may like to have a brief stop in Bern since it is on the way.

Itinerary

Starting in Lucerne after your breakfast or even before. There is a hourly connection to Zermatt. The Train ride from Bern to Visp and then the ride with a mountain Train (sometimes Glacier Express) through the Mattertal are very scenic. In Zermatt we walk along the main road and will see the most important buidlings. Lunch can be either in Zermatt or somewhere above town after you have taken on of the gondolas, for example to Schwarzsee, Gornergrat or Sunnega. If you like we can make short hikes at the lakes or even take the highest gondola of Europe to Kleines Matterhorn (above 3800 m). In the afternoon you may have a look into some shops, enjoy some local or international food and relish the special atmosphere of one of the most famous mountain villages.
