Zermatt is located on the southern part of Switzerland near the border of Italy. It’s home to the Matterhorn which can be seen from anywhere in Zermatt. I stayed at the Hotel Alpha in central Zermatt for around $65 per night. The room was small but cozy and there was a shared bathroom for the floor I was on, but it wasn’t a big deal. From the balcony, there’s a sweet view of Matterhorn.
The food’s expensive at any of the restaurants in the area, but check out the local markets to save a few bucks.
