Merry Christmas! After breakfast we make the short journey to Täsch where we board the shuttle train to Zermatt. The famous Alpine village lies at the foot of the Matterhorn – probably the world’s most famous mountain. Zermatt has preserved its original character and the traditional chalets which are lit up with twinkling coloured lights make Zermatt an idyllic picture of festivity.

After some free time, we take the cog railway to the Gornergrat to enjoy the Panorama of the famous Matterhorn. In the afternoon, we take the train back to Täsch and travel by coach back to the hotel, where this evening we enjoy a Christmas dinner with live entertainment.
