The Matterhorn – a symbol for Switzerland. There is the highest mountain the world, the most dangerous and the most challenging. But the most famous mountain in the world is without doubt the Matterhorn. The Matterhorn and Switzerland are inseparable.
The Matterhorn is the most photographed mountain in the world. Show a picture of the Matterhorn to someone in the farthest corner of the world, and they know instantly which peak it is. The first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865 – which cost four of the seven climbers their lives – changed the region forever, which until then had been very secluded. The Matterhorn became famous the world over and the goal of ambitious mountaineers.
At the foot of the pyramid-shaped mountain stands the Hörnlihütte. It forms the starting point of an ascent of the mountain and serves as a place of refuge.
