Highs & Lows

The Matterhorn

The weather was very cold!

Q & A

  • How was the food?

    The fondue restaurant at the cheese factory in Gruyeres!

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Unless you plan on staying in the area several days, stay in Taesch and take the train to Zermatt for the day. It's so much less expensive to stay there, the train ride is beautiful, and it runs constantly!

  • Packing tips?

    Lots of layers! Rain gear, cold weather gear, hiking boots.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Renting a car was the cheapest option for us. There are trains, but they are very expensive if you don't have a membership.

  • Any surprises?

    How expensive it was! Prepare your wallet.

Lodging

  • Airbnb in the old town.

  • Matterhorn Inn - located in Taesch, the last town you can drive to before Zermatt. Very clean and comfortable rooms, right across the street from the train station.
