Walking through the Hinterdorfstrasse you will discover the old buildings of Zermatt, stables, storage huts and the living quarters, all built next to each other to keep out the cold winter temperatures. Very interesting.

If you are in Zermatt, you have to walk down the street. This is where all the old houses are from the 1700&1800's. It is only 1-2 blocks, but worth the time.

When in Zermatt you just have to visit the old town. The main street is the Hinterdorfstrasse and like the rest of Zermatt is traffic free apart from the little electric vehicles used as either taxis or by the locals. This creates a peaceful atmosphere free of pollution. The houses that make up the old town are wooden aged with... More

Hinterdorfstrasse is actually the old part of Zermatt. Situated near the main church , it is a lovely walk. You turn left from the church and walk some distance, and you find yourselves among old swiss chalets, walking along cobble stone streets. You get the opportunity to soak in the atmosphere of a traditional swiss village.

I like to stay every week end in this city ( Zermatt ) during my presence in Switzerland, no cars or any heavy traffic, the food there is so delicious and in reasonable price.

Everywhere is closed until second week of June. Like a ghost city! But nature is great.. Though i wouldn't prefer just for nature, hard to reach and expensive,it is a greater place to ski..

Zermatt has both the very old and new. They have every accommodation you could wish for in hotels, restaurants serving food from around the world, shopping for alpine gear and souvenirs, and our favorite, walking through the old town. What is remarkable is their unique construction of homes, hotels and old storage buildings, all made of notched square cut logs... More

This town is the cutest little alpine village. We were there just before ski season and it was just beautiful. The hotels and shops are warm and outside everywhere they have their colourful little flower boxes hanging from all their windows just gorgeous.the old part of town is well worth a walk through. The views of the Matterhorn from several... More
