The wooden buildings in this street are hundreds of years old. The owners clearly keep them well maintained, though most are now simply used for storing firewood etc. Such a photogenic street!

When in Zermatt, be sure not to miss out on this little street. Even though it's just one left turn away from the "Bahnhofstrasse" and right smack in the middle of the village, you might easily miss it, since the first few meters do not...More

Hinterdorfstrasse is 'Old Town' Zermatt. It's right in the center of Zermatt and some of the log cabin type housing dates back to the 16th century. No one lives there now and there are no services right there, but one can stroll down the narrow...More

This was such a cute street of historic homes and architecture right in downtown Zermatt! I can’t imagine how they were still standing under all the feet of snow, but that is a testament to how well they were built!

Interesting traditional little old backstreet. Various grain stores, drying rooms, houses from past times, right off the main street and only a 2 minute detour so worth doing.

This is a lovely part of Zermatt, dating back to the 16th Century, with traditional timber houses built on stone slabs on top of stilts. The stone slabs were there to keep out vermin. Houses like this can also be found in the surrounding villages...More
