The Matterhorn is such an iconic mountain, probably the most recognisable in the whole world, that it's worth taking a day out of your holiday in Switzerland to make sure you've seen it. And the bonus is that Zermatt, the village that lies in the valley beneath it, is one of Switzerland's most beautiful resorts.
Apart from gazing up at this magnificent natural spectacle, there are plenty of other things to keep you entertained here for at least a day. Trips up the Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn, they're all fantastic mini-trips.
Obviously, if you're visiting during the winter then hitting Zermatt's fabulous ski slopes are a must, and probably the most spectacular way of viewing the incredible Matterhorn. But that's a whole other story...
