The Old Dog: Continues His Vacation....Zermatt!

in switzerland •  last month

Today it was time to venture out from the quaint sleepy little village of Blatten.

We decided to head over to Zermatt, another bigger sleepy little village. This one though is the launching pad for the famous Matterhorn (which by the way I can see from the balcony of my home over 200 km away)!

This place is so popular that in order for it not be be overrun by cars you need to park in Täsch and take a 10 minute train ride to Zermatt.

First a Couple of Cool Things Along The Way

Switzerland is full of waterfalls cascading down the mountains! So majestically beautiful!

Let's Check Out Zermatt Now!

Upon our arrival we were greeted by a horse drawn carriage which is used to take guests to the ritziest hotel in town.

Beautiful Flowers and Quaint Wooden Structures Line The Roads!

Should We Check Out The Matterhorn?

Actually when we got to the look-out point the peak was nestled in the clouds. Are you disappointed? Actually we weren't.
It still looked so majestic and my photos cannot do it justice!

That's it hiding under the cloud. Perhaps that's where it should be given its height!

Very beautiful Community expressing a culture all its own. I kind of wonder how that bridge was made in the first picture I would have been quite an undertaking. Thanks for sharing @kus-knee

·

The bridge is so high that I was terrified to look down!

Look like a loving place!!
I live on the other side of Matterhorn..and usually when I want to make a shot i find it hidden on the clouds like on your pictures!🤣
Enjoy that wonderful nature and have a wonderful vacation!!

...and cheers! 😃

Gran belle foto e che bel posto! Ci devo andare prima o poi ;-)

Yes sooner or later!

With the clouds on and around Matterhorn (horn of matter?, weird name) it looks like a chimney !
Question: the buildings are completely made of wood? I'm surprised to see 4 floors !

·

Wood and stone!

·
·

Intersting ! Thanks.

Oh wow those nice buildings, the beautiful flowers, and the mountains for a backdrop!! Just stunning!

·

We are loving our few days here.

Thanks!

the famous Matterhorn (which by the way I can see from the balcony of my home over 200 km away)!

Wow. That's incredible @kus-knee.

Lovely selection of photographs. Zermatt looks exactly what I would expect a Swiss village to look like.

Looking forward to seeing where you are tomorrow. 😁

·

Thanks a lot for following along!

Seeing your photos I understand that the Swiss mountain villages are a model for all mountain resorts. They are the same in Romania. There are similarities and differences, of course. Depends on the degree of civilization.
We can say about Matterhorn whether it is shy or it is headed in ... clouds! Have a good holiday!

·

Thanks so much!

It is very beautiful looking. Friend, i think That you are enjoying the holiday.

You are making me jealous, you are making me curious as I am loosing my patience to get some quick money and straightaway make a trip to this place. For me this is next to heaven.

·

Yes, it's lovely!
