Beautiful, panoramic hike on the quiet side of Zermatt with two top places to stop for refreshments.
However big the hustle and bustle in Zermatt around the world-famous mountain railways, there are quieter places to escape to. Besides, there are fantastic views of the Matterhorn and the chain of 4000-metre peaks along the Swiss-Italian border. After the first ascent through a narrow, steep gorge, you reach the Edelweisshütte, which is clearly visible directly above the centre of Zermatt and stands exposed on a rocky promontory. From there, the trail continues through the gorge to the Trift mountain inn and down the steep slope directly above Zermatt.
