Hi, we will be traveling in the beginning of this September (5th trip). THis year we will stop a Stresa for 3 night, then Zermat for 3 nights, then Wengen for 4. We love hikes, views.

Focusing on Zermatt - should we do a traditional itinerary:

Day 1 - Klein Matterhorn and then Gornergrat. Should we do both or one is better then the other? Should we get combined ticket? Is Glacier Paradise part of tht trip

Day 2 - Sunnega. Are some hikes better then the other?

Day 3 - what what you reccomend?

Hi maniimjach,

so cool that it will be your 5th trip to Switzerland. I am glad you like it here :)

I, personally, prefer Gornergrat over Klein Matterhorn I think the view is better from there. But there are some great hikes if you visit Klein Matterhorn. For example, there is a suspension bridge near Furi: www.outdooractive.com/en/route/nature-trail/switzerland/furi-suspension-bridge-trail-nr.-17a-/8871900/

Mentioning the suspension bridge - have a look at this one too: www.outdooractive.com/en/route/hiking-route/switzerland/circular-hike-to-the-suspension-bridge-in-randa-nr.-69-/23753811/

At www.myswissalps.com/zermatt/activities you'll find more recommended hiking routes. I also like the 5 lakes hike: www.outdooractive.com/en/route/hiking-route/zermatt/the-five-lakes-walk/29947267/

I would buy 1 rail pass for all the regions you are visiting and not just for Zermatt, like the Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card. You can read about these passes here:

I hope this helps,

Ildiko
