Misused as the motif for countless countryside calendars, famous due to thousands of films, emblems and Swiss stickers and labels, but despite or perhaps because of all of this, the Matterhorn continues to remain the archetypal mountain. Actually seeing the world-famous pyramid of rock in front of you is always a fascinating experience.
