For my money, the views from the Gornergrat are superb. The Kulisse (row of mountains) from the Monte Rosa to the Matterhorn are laid out in front of you and you can walk down to Riffelberg to catch the train back to town. Or you can take the Gondola to Schwarzsee, but there's not much to do there unless you want to hike up to the Hörnlihütte which has more fantastic views and you are actually on the Matterhorn! Alternatively, take the cablecar to the Klein Matterhorn. It's above the summer snowline,so you can go skiing. ( I haven't skiied there, so I don't know if you can hire gear there, or have to get it in town. Just ask at the Alpin Zentrum). There's also an ice grotto to explore.
If the kids want more adventure, try the Forest Fun Park. Lots of Zip Lines, rope ladders and climbing poles. A real Hoot! www.zermatt.ch/en/Medi a/Attractions/Forest-Fun-Park
