Matterhorn Switzerland, what a shape!

Hi everybody and Grüäzi! Welcome back to my new Post!


Zermatt is a popular mountain resort in the canton of valais . From hiking, climbing to skiers in winter, there is nothing you can’t do. The city is located 1600 meters above sea level and lays at the foot of the famous landmark ”Matterhorn”. It is by far one of the most famous photograph spots from Switzerland.

In winter: 

  • Paradise for skiers and snowboarders or other snow sports
  • Ice skating and curling
  • Restaurants, bars and a lively après-ski scene
  • Boutiques and little stores for souveniers
  • Luxury resorts

In summer: 

  • Paradise for hiking and climbing
  • Nature
  • Paragliding in front of the Matterhorn
  • Restaurants, bars and nice sun terraces
  • Spas to relax
  • Luxury resorts

The whole area is car free and everything is in walking distance. Buses and cable cars bring you up the mountain to take some incredible pictures.

The Hotel prices are high since it is a really famous touristic spot and a must-do if you visit Switzerland. I was lucky and slept at my friends home, so I didn’t spend a lot of money that weekend. 


Matterhorn the famous landmark

The Matterhorn is 4478 meters above sea level but still not the highest mountain of Switzerland. That title holds the Dufourspitze with 4634m.

His shape and history makes it one of the most famous mountains in the world. 

To see it up close lets you forget time and just take a breath to let it all in. We had a great day hiking up to this little lake to take some awesome shots and continued to our beer stop.

Sunny, fresh air and a perfect view

A ticket from Zürich mainstation to Zermatt will cost you around 120 swissfranks or even more and the ride takes around 4 hours. It is located at the boarder of France, but don’t worry, english is fine!


Something to have in mind!

Everybody is focused on traveling the world and places that are not in our grasp. New adventures, stories and cultures to find, but we often forget that the places close to us are reachable right now, waiting for you to discover.


Thanks for reading my post and hope to see you soon!

Cheese hike Swiss Mountains ”Grüäzi”

Grüäzi mitenand! Hello everybody!

Stoos! A small village located 1305 m above sea level. It has just 150 inhabitants. In summer a nice place to go for a hike and in winter a ski resort. The whole town is car free what makes it much more relaxing.

View on my way down, the view from another mountain big Mythen!

Cheese hike ”Chääswanderung”

At the switch of the mountain station you can buy your ticket including the cheese pass. But what is a cheese pass?

Up in this little village you will find a lot of small restaurants and farmer houses which offer fresh cheese from their goats or the region.

Some of them are located in the middle of the village and others a 1-hour hike away the station.

This is what it will cost:

  • Up/Down the mountain in the Stoostrain: 22.- CHF
  • Cheese pass: 15.- CHF

The Alpchäs pass gives you the freedom to taste native Alpine cheese  in seven ”Bergbeizli” along the cheese trail at Stoos. Portion to approx. 100g alp cheese with bread. 

On the way to the little farmer houses you will pass by goats and cows. They will even walk with you for some time.

You will have incredible views on the way walking through the forest along the stony ways. Far away the big and small Mythen and other Swiss alps. The air is always fresh and birds are singing along the ways. So this is definitely one experience for itself.

On our way back we had to hike a little up the hill which makes it even more enjoyable since you have to do something to get to this nice cheese places, where you can sit down and enjoy some native cheeses they offer. I was surprised that even the bread and tee was self made!

Since I didn’t take a picture of the car itself I will show you a picture from the internet. It looks so adventerus.

So thanks for reading my post and I hope you get the chance to visit Switzerland and go for a Chääswanderig at the Swiss apls!
