|One of the most popular Alpine villages to visit has to be Zermatt
with the stunning peak of the Matterhorn constantly drawing the eye
towards it's steep, angled slopes and ridges.
There are many cable
cars and trains which make for great trips but these are expensive and
so often, the walk from the village is pleasant in itself especially
as stops can be timed to fit in nicely with the many huts and
restaurants found in the mountains.
As well as day walks there are many routes which can be walked over
a number of days using the mountain huts for overnight stops. Lower
down the valley one finds part of the Europaweg, a long distance
walking route which explores the Matter valley.
