Don't miss walking down this street. Experience what it was like living here hundreds of years ago. See the traditional mazots. Also, fountain commemorating Ulrich Inderbinen who climbed Matterhorn over 370 times and his last ascent was when he was 90 years old.

Take a short detour from shopping, dining on the Bahnhofstrasse to experience what it was like living here 300+ years ago. This street has a number of the old log structures some of which are still in use today. They are incredibly picturesque with their many colorful flower boxes and if you look closely you can get a great pix of the Matterhorn between the houses. Post card perfect as they say!

We stumbled on this section of old "historic" buildings and loved it. There are little plaques on some of the buildings, to give you an idea of what they were used for; how old; etc. Also, the Matterhorn Museum gives good info on how it was to live in these buildings.

The wooden buildings in this street are hundreds of years old.
The owners clearly keep them well maintained,
though most are now simply used for storing firewood etc.
Such a photogenic street!

It is only a little street and I must admit we almost missed it but I did love it there. Charming old wooden buildings, the oldest part of town, some buildings few hundred years old. They give an amazing idea of life back there. I love this kind of places.
In the summer Tourist Office in Zermatt offers guided tours of Hinterdorf (in English as well) at the low price but we were unfortunately too early and those tours were not on offer yet. Shame.
