Can you discover the truth about the Matterhorn?

With autumn kicking in, the first snows of winter are not far away and that thought alone is enough to make some winter sports fans plan a call to the ski hire shop. The next trip to the pistes is not far away.

Zermatt will be waiting to welcome thousands of people soon, and as well as its freshly snow-covered slopes, the town will be offering plenty more to enjoy. There's the usual bars, cafes and hotels, of course, but those looking around can also find a couple of interesting Matterhorn-themed exhibitions.

Summer history tours at Zermatt hotel

Zermatt's Hotel Monte Rosa is in the midst of hosting a summer of history tours. Famous people like author Mark Twain - who penned The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - are discussed in these events.

Announcing the tours, Zermatt Tourismus reports that they are themed around the belle epoque, and can be attended without prior registration. Fascinating stories are being promised as part of the evening activities. 

Swiss Alpine Museum opens new Matterhorn show

The Swiss Alpine Museum recently opened a pop-up exhibition on the Gornergrat.

The show is all about mountains that are somewhat similar to Zermatt mountain The Matterhorn, and which share the same nickname.

Called The Matterhorn Family, the show is due to remain in place for the next few months until October 25th.

Zermatt Bahnhofstrasse's new Matterhorn trail

Zermatt has unveiled a memorial to some historic climbers, which people will be able to see if they visit.

Zermatt Tourismus reports that on Tuesday (July 14th), Zermatt marked the 150th anniversary of the Matterhorn's peak first being reached - this 19th century event was historic, but also deeply sad, given what happened shortly afterwards.

Newly unveiled memorial markers, naming the people involved in this famous climb, have been put in place on the Bahnhofstrasse, to form a special trail which people can use to reflect on mountaineering history.

Summer traditions in Zermatt

Early August is a special time in Zermatt, the Swiss mountain and skiing hotspot. It's traditionally home to the Folklore Festival in the town.

This is a long-standing tradition, which has its 47th appearance this year, according to Zermatt Tourismus. It always takes place at the same time annually, during the second weekend in the often balmy month of August.

Head along and see more than 1,000 people participate in the yearly parade which forms a central part of this celebration of tradition.

Scheduled for the early afternoon, the parade will feature plenty to see, and begins its journey on the Bahnhofstrasse at 1pm local time, in what will hopefully be perfect weather.
