How to see the Matterhorn

Perched high in the Swiss Alps is a beautiful, majestic and high peak – the Matterhorn. Visible and accessible from the very cute mountain town of Zermatt, the peak is worth a peek in the summer time.

Tickets to ride the train up the mountainside are available for purchase online or at the train station in town. Board the train (or hike) up to the top for optimal viewing of the peak!

The Matterhorn and all its glory is impressive, even when the clouds can get “hung up” on its peak. And, although the Matterhorn is the main attraction, there are breathtaking views of valley, snow caps and glaciers everywhere you look. They are the kind of 360 degree views that are worth writing home about (or blogging about in this case).

      Good to know! We are “wanna-be” photographers with no training, just a good camera! 🙂
