This gentle winter hiking trail leads from the centre of Zermatt through different quarters into the area of Ried. The clear view of the Matterhorn from here is particularly beautiful.
The route starts in the ‘Wiesti’ quarter. After a flight of steps, the route leads past numerous luxury chalets where you can catch a glimpse of sumptuous interiors. In winter the gables all shine over the village, creating a romantic atmosphere. The trail continues towards ‘Eggen’ in the direction of Ried. At ‘Zer Bännu’, walkers can enjoy a lovely view over the village. The path leads past small, ancient stables before crossing snow-covered meadows and light woodland to reach Restaurant Ried.
After leaving the village and the quarter called Le Petit Village, look back over your shoulder to see the most photogenic side of the Matterhorn.
