Zermatt is a refined ski resort in the Swiss canton of Valais along the Italian border in the Swiss Alps (1600 m above sea level). Past documents show that the enthusiasts of nature first came to Zermatt around the 1780s, with the foreigners’ first recorded visiting during the 1820s. The first reported visitor who reached the Matterhorn Mountain Summit in 1865 was a British mountaineer named Edward Whymper, which gave Zermatt the start of solid reputation that took it to a prominent position in International Mountain and Ski world. The Matterhorn Peak was reached by Theodore Roosevelt in 1881. The Visp-Zermatt Railway was built in 1891 as interest started to increase. Few records show that Mr. Winston Churchill climbed the near by mountain (Monte Rosa) in 1894 when he was a young man in his early twenties.
In the course of time, Zermatt has grown with developing tourism and has opted to target the high end of the tourism industry. Catering to elites and their elegant associates, Zermatt is known to be among the most luxurious ski resorts in The Swiss Alps and the world. Within the little old city centre, there are few historical spots, but the hotels and luxury facilities are the majority.
Please take notice that Zermatt is an auto-fee area, and buses may only stop at Täsch's Matterhorn terminal, then by train to Zermatt by Matterhorn-Gotthard Railway. Some hotels provide unique electric shuttles from Täsch's Matterhorn terminal, which have to be scheduled during reserving your accommodation.
