JUNE 21 - 24
Traveling to Zermatt (located in the German speaking sector of Switzerland) was especially beautiful, most notably during the "Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn" ride. It is the last train leg on a journey into the town of Zermatt, going at a steady pace, climbing in elevation as it makes its way into the famed alps.
The whole town can be walked edge to edge in a half an hour. There are no cars, but small vehicles provide taxi and even bus services. Near the rail station is a cozy cluster of 1 and 5 star hotels existing peacefully together.
The Matterhorn can be seen from everywhere in Zermatt, though because it is so tall its peak is almost always hidden away in clouds.
