This was an unplanned and unexpected highlight of our Christmas vacation in Switzerland. We woke up and wondered what to do on the Eve of Christmas Eve? A trip to see the Matterhorn seemed perfect!!!
We started our journey to Zermatt taking the BLS Car Transport from Kandersteg on our way to Täsch. In the town of Täsch we parked our car and took one of the many permitted to do so taxi service cars to take us to the entrance of the combustion car-free town of Zermatt.
Zermatt, decorated for Christmas, was like stepping into a Christmas card! This swanky little town offered nothing but the best!!
We took the Gornergrat Bahn up to the the summit of Gornegrat mountain. There we spent a relaxing afternoon enjoying the area, savoring a cheese fondue on the outside deck of 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat while taking in the breathtaking views of Liskamm, the Gorner Glacier, and of course the Matterhorn!
When the sun went down below the Alps we enjoyed the relaxing sway of the Gornergrat Bahn as it took us back to Zermatt,to catch the Zermatt Shuttle back to Täsch. This shuttle ride was a perfect way to end a perfect day, the Eve of Christmas Eve, as we viewed the Christmas lights decorating the homes on the mountain sides!!!!
