If you are interested (as I am) in the history of zermatt. This is one place you must have visited. Respect for the mountaineers who reached the top of the MatterHorn for the first time

This is a memorial dedicated to those mountain guides who perished doing their job in this valley. It is lcated in the town cemetery and is very moving. Most moving too to recognise their graves when wanting through this most well cared for cemetery.
