What to do with car when in Zermatt

Hi. My husband and I will be on an extended holiday in Europe, and will be staying in northern Italy in August. My husband has always wanted to go to Zermatt, so we're considering taking a few days and driving into Switzerland. We would have to leave our car in Tasch, is that correct? Are there secure garages? Is it safe to leave a rental car unattended for a couple of days (and nights)?

Also, what's Zermatt like in August? Assume from the volume of questions here that it is still active, plenty of restaurants etc even in high summer?

Thanks.

Leave the car in the garage in Tasch, it is safe. August is a nice time to visit as everything is open.

I just wanted to thank you for your response.

We spent two nights in Zermatt, and felt very relaxed leaving our rental car at the car park in Tasch. It was so easy to drive straight in to Tasch, and from the main road turn directly into the car park at the station.

You're right - Zermatt is fabulous in August, and I really wish we had longer to spend there.
