My husband and I will be in Switzerland in September and hope to do some moderate hikes in the Zermatt and Bernese Oberland areas. Are there good hiking trail maps we should get before or during our trip?
Welcome to MySwissAlps! Sure, there are very good maps available: myswissalps.com/ hiking/maps.
Try these. The one with marked trails are called die Wanderkarten.
Buy them once you are on the ground
