ESCAPE THE HEAT IN THE PICTURESQUE HAVEN OF ZERMATT


Zermatt, home of the impressive and most photographed Matterhorn mountain, is not only a winter wonderland but also a sought-after summer destination. Both apartments within Chalet Shalimar treat guests to dramatic Matterhorn views. With its car-free streets, traditional Swiss charm, and plethora of activities – including summer skiing on Europe’s highest elevation slopes at Klein Matterhorn – this lively resort captivates visitors year-round. Zermatt offers a ski area comprising 21 km of piste. You may even cross paths with many champions as it is a chosen training area for many of them during the summer season. 

Something that shouldn’t be missed on your Zermatt holiday itinerary is a journey aboard the Gornergrat train, Europe’s highest open-air cog railway. With a thrilling ascent of 1,469 m, this ride promises an unforgettable experience. Along the way, you’ll pass serene mountain lakes, weaving through galleries, tunnels and enchanting forests. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by marvellous, uninterrupted mountain views.
