A perfect stay in Zermatt

Everyone tells me that the Matterhorn is renown for always being covered by at least some cloud. I have to say that we saw the Matterhorn in all its (rare) cloudless glory. Wow. We took the train (well 4 different ones) to Zermatt – the village at the bottom of the mighty Matterhorn. We had the most perfect day and took a few photos of course. Missie and Simon headed up over the glacier to the Kleine Matterhorn and I headed up to the Schwarzsee with the boys (under 3 year olds aren’t allowed so high up the mountain).

Spent the night at the Jugendherberge Zermatt, another perfect part of our perfect stay in Zermatt. Quite awesome. View of the Matterhorn out of my window, breakfast and dinner included in the less than CHF 50.- per person per night. Only the steep hill and gazillion stairs to get up to the Hostel were a bit of a killer.

Anyway, I will definitely do a post on the service and hotels here in Switzerland. Of course, I have to being a hotel & service qualified fanatic (or is it critic!?).
