    I'm starting to do some planning for a mid-late summer trip to Europe for this upcoming summer. I was thinking of flying to London, take the Chunnel to Paris and then get my ass down to Zermatt somehow. Has anyone on this board been to Zermatt and if so, is it worth the out of the way trip to get there? I've always wanted to see the Matterhorn in person and with photos like below, how could you blame me?

      I haven't been to Zermatt, but I stayed for a few days in the town of Lauterbrunnen in the Swiss Alps a few years ago. This is a small town near Interlaken. It was so beautiful and peaceful, I would reccomend this town if you are interested in visting the alps. It lies in valley, with the mountains rising steeply on both sides. The town is small and everything is incredibly picturesque. Farmers come right through town with their cows and other livestock. It is a great area for hiking. You can take easy walks in the valley to enjoy the scenery, and there are mountain trails for the more fit and adventurous. By the way, the swiss trains are amazingly nice.
