Walking along a few more metres one comes to the main church and square of Zermatt, surrounded by some of Zermatt’s oldest wooden buildings. The cobbled main square is focal point for local events and is a good place to sit down and watch the world go by – and gaze at the beauty of the Matterhorn.
Walk past the council building to the cafe du Pont, it is one of the cheapest restaurants in Zermatt, in very pleasant locations by the gushing waters of the Triftbach.
Zermatt is found at the foot of the Matterhorn in the German-speaking canton of Valais in southern Switzerland. Located just 10 kilometers from the Italian border (Cervinia), you can go skiing in Switzerland in the morning, have lunch in Italy an hour later and be back in time for a tasty cheese fondue at Zermatt’s oldest restaurant, the Café DuPont that same evening.
