Zermatt is located near the Switzerland border with Italy at the foot of the Matterhorn. Zermatt is a gorgeous resort town that offers some of the best skiing in Switzerland. Zermatt has almost 300 sunny days each year; therefore, the skiing slopes are usually open for visitors to enjoy most of the year. The climate and weather are only surpassed by the breathtaking and stunning views of the Matterhorn and the Swiss Alps that surround Zermatt. Since 1947, no vehicles with a combustion engine have been allowed within the city – – only electric cars are permitted in Zermatt. This means that the air quality is clear, dry and clean. However, because visitors are not allowed to bring cars into Zermatt, they must use other forms of transportation to reach Zermatt.
