At the base of the Matterhorn, a towering mountain in the Alps, is the village of Zermatt. Zermatt is the ultimate place to visit for those who love breathtaking scenery, and you’ll be surrounded by snow-covered peaks and beautifully clear lakes. Winters are when Zermatt becomes incredibly popular, and you’ll want to head there if you’re interested in skiing or snowboarding. Throughout the year, you can admire the scenery on the cable cars that head up and down the nearest mountaintops. The Gornergrat Railway is also a fantastic way to spend an hour soaking up the views and snapping excellent photographs of Mount Gornergrat along the way.
