The Matterhorn is a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy. It is a large, near-symmetrical pyramidal peak in the extended Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 meters (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe.
The asymmetrical peak of Matterhorn appears like an ax head above the outstanding resorts of Zermatt. Near the Italian border, this highest ax-shaped among the surrounding Alps attracts skiers and snowboarders from around the world.
The Matterhorn glacier is known as Europe’s highest summer ski region that is open all year around. The Museum displays the developmental history of Zermatt from a village at mountaintop to a hill-top. It provides a heartfelt peace to nature lovers around the globe. So, don’t forget to skip this great paradise spot when you are visiting Switzerland next time.
