This winter hiking trail crosses the quarter at the far end of Zermatt in the direction of Furi. Along the way it leads across snow-blanketed meadows, through wintery forest and past romantic, secluded spots.
The trail starts in Winkelmatten, where walkers can enjoy a clear view of the Matterhorn, before leading over snowy expanses and past small hamlets and agricultural buildings. It then starts to climb into the mountains, sometimes steeply, before plunging into romantic Alpine forest.
In Schweigmatten, a small barn stands on top of a big rock split in two, looking out over a wide snowy expanse. It’s like a scene from another era.
When you take the road from the Winkelmatten quarter in the direction of Furi, you can see the snow-covered trees, deep blue sky and rising suddenly in their midst, the most famous rocky peak in the world - the Matterhorn. Don’t forget your camera!
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk.
