Zermatt and Zermattitus – From Evergreen to Pristine!

I think about Swiss as the land that flows with chocolate, cheese and honey

ZERMATT, SWITZERLAND: Take it from a certified globetrotter, never travel to Zermatt! Many people will be healed from severe hepatitis, but never recover from the magic spell of Zermattitus in Zermatt. It is not only the massive sharp peaks of the majestic Matterhorn that will dazzle your senses. The Valais is endowed with a blend of terra, flora and fauna managed ny human talents and charm. On Gornergrat Gourmet Excursion you will encounter a black-nose sheep on the wet grass of the sleepy meadows. The unsuspecting merry corderos will be served spicy and sizzling at the Riffelberg restaurant for dinner.

Lava from Africa

Helmut Biner, the ecology expert guide, exposed to us a striking revelation. In bygone millennia the tectonic shifting of earth has helped forming the Alpine mountain chain. By amazing grace the lava flowed all the way from continental Africa. Landed in the promised Valais basin enhancing shaping the arduous chain of the Pennine Alps.

A popular attraction is the Glacier Express, which operates regular year-round services.

At midway in the mountains our last stop was at Alphitta cottage restaurant Managed by Crazy Fredy! This cozy chalet represents classic hunting Lodge were preserved trophies of fox, eagles and wild deer are on display. Fredy served us a sensational apple strudel pie laced with cinnamon, vanilla ice and, shredded pistachio flakes.

The friendly St. Bernard

From intimate lodges to perfect transport networks and from Casual cafés to breathtaking mountain trails. I was genuinely impressed by the Presence of a friendly St. Bernard canine who occupied center stage at the gala Dinner held at the classic hotel Zermatterhof.

Cheerful Janine Imesch, director of marketing at Zermatt spared no effort inspiring the media from four corners of the planet. to savor the wonders of the Alps. Images of the epical 1965 movie “The Sound of Music” will flicker Into your memory lane when you spot the horse buggy shuttling jovial tourists and winter sport athletes.

The land of honey

“On top of The Mountains we develop clearer thoughts and enjoy a unique perspective.” Those were the lines of the chief who masterminds plan for the land that flows chocolate, Cheese and honey.

At the Sunnegga (sunny corner) peak we were invited to Marvel at the mighty Matterhorn by night. The tasty raclette fromage was just the tip of the iceberg. Before Zermatt and Zermattitus celebrate jubilee of the ascent of Edward Whymper. His team conquer Matterhorn on July 14, 1865. Since that day the mystique of the peak has been irresistible!!

Zermatt in all directions

Premium destination

Every year World Economic Forum meets in Davos and issues the report that listed Switzerland as the premium travel destination. The Swiss has monopolized that rank for the last decade. Matthias Albrecht encouraged me to Explore the rugged life style of the Alps through the silver peak of Matterhorn. It is evident that the solid mountains, the soft snow and the rich soil coupled with crisp rain have contributed to the professional skills and moral values of the Zermattos!

When we departed to resume the post convention tours to Geneva, Zurich and Ticino we definitely suffered from one common symptom, Zermattitus in Zermatt!
