The Matterhorn is one of the most amazing peak I ever saw. It lies on the border between Switzerland and Italy, and is one of the highest summit in the Alps with it’s 4,478 meters. And yes, it is the sign of the iconic chocolate: Toblerone.
The best place to stay when meeting the Matterhont is Zermatt. The town cannot be visited by car in order to prevent air pollution. Almost all the cars, vehicles are electric in Zermatt. There is a little town north from Zermatt called Tasch, operating trains to Zermatt. The town is amazing, as it can be expected from a luxury ski resort.
To explore the Matterhorn, and make iconic photos you have to visit Gornergrat. Take the cog railway, what was the World’s first fully electrified cog railway. The terminus is the highest open air station in Europe, with a hotel called 3100 Kulmhotel. The hotel has two huge astronomical telescopes, and restaurants. The panoramic view is breathtaking, encompassing 29 of the Alps’ highest peaks measuring over 4,000 meters, including the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Castor, Pollux.
