They came to Zermatt to reach higher levels on earth and tried to touch the sky. They climbed stairways to heaven and ended on the climbers grave yard. Interesting to visit.

Interesting and sobering to read the (brief) elaborations that accompany the epitaphs. Unfortunately many of them are difficult or impossible to read, and thee is no apparent effort to preserve them.

This churchyard provides a stark reminder of the dangers of the many attempts to summit this world renowned - The Matterhorn. As you stroll through this small cemetery, your mind wonders at the many stories behind these stones. Just off the main street, definitely worth a walk thru. A good thing to do on a cloudy/rainy/snowy day.

Located just behind St Mauritius church, we visited this cemetery and said prayers for those buried here. Reading the epitaphs carved on the tombstones of these late mountaineers made us feel their deep passion for this dangerous sport. Each headstone is interesting and uniquely decorated. One of the peaceful areas in the village.

Very interesting to see this tribute to many who lost their lives ascending or descending the Matterhorn. They came from all over the world and various age groups. We stumbled onto it and were glad we did.
