We wanted to go somewhere at the last minute but had a difficult time finding a reasonably priced hotel for four people. Our criteria: someplace in Switzerland, sleeps four, cheap.
We left Saturday morning and headed to the Matterhorn. We spent the day in Zermatt and took the train up to the Gomergrat where there are spectacular views of the Matterhorn. But not the day we were there, It was cloudy and rainy. There was a marathon taking place and the entire coarse was uphill - Angie, let's see how tough you really are.
|The Marathon was from Zermatt to Gomergrat - all uphill|
|The train that takes you up the mountain.|
|One of the many waterfalls.|
Saturday afternoon we walked around in the town of Zermatt and then bought groceries at the Coop for dinner. We went back to our hotel just a short train ride from Zermatt in Tasch. We swam and had dinner on the deck- bread, fruit, and chocolate. The hotel was amazing, two bedroom, living room and kitchen - the best part was sleeping on a real bed instead the futon mattress I have at home.
Sunday, the skies were a little clearer and we hiked around Zermatt and got to see most of the Matterhorn
