Matterhorn on Zurich Airport

When moving from terminal to terminal on the Zurich airport, you can take the underground train. While waiting, you will hear sounds through the AP system, cow bells ringing and the lovely sounds as if you are walking through the Swiss mountains.

At this moment, you will have to look through the window, as you will be happily surprised with a lovely view. Check it out... It's the Matterhorn...

Although not the highest mountain in Switzerland, the Matterhorn is considered as an iconic emblem of the region of the Swiss Alps. The mountain overlooks the town of Zermatt in the canton of Valais on the north and Cervinia in the Aosta Valley on the south.

The Matterhorn (German), Cervino (Italian) or Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps. With its 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high summit, lying on the border between Switzerland and Italy, it is one of the highest peaks in the Alps[2] and its 1,200 metres (3,937 ft) north face is one of the great north faces of the Alps.
