The enormous, jagged silhouette of the Matterhorn is the symbol of Zermatt. Come to better understand this local obsession when you visit the Matterhorn Museum and discover extraordinary finds that have been uncovered by archaeologists throughout the years. Museum exhibitions range from a Neolithic stone ax to a piece of the actual rope that snagged and sent four of the first climbers to reach the Matterhorn's summit to their deaths. Travelers of all ages will appreciate a trip to the Gornergat Toboggan Course, a steep and curving slope that sends brave patrons flying at rapid speeds. This adrenaline packed thrill ride will undoubtedly leave your hands trembling, but you'll be hooked and will be back up the hill in no time! Between immersing yourself in local culture and a full day on the slopes, a little rest and relaxation is needed. Instead of taking a nap, head over to Vernissage, which is a bar, art gallery, restaurant and movie theater. This space was built by local architect Heinz Julen and is a technical and aesthetic marvel. Glass panes seal off the theater from the noise of the bar upstairs and food can be ordered during the movie and delivered to your seat.
