The Saint Bernard dog is a special symbol of Switzerland. Everyone knows that the large and good-natured Barry saved the lives of lost mountaineers. The four-legged hero has always been bred at the Alpine Pass of Great Saint Bernhard.
Over 20 gigantic 4000 and more meter-high peaks surround the rocky ridge between the Findelen and Gornergletscher, at 1500 meters above Zermatt. Since over a century a cog railway has made its way here – and still does today, every 24 minutes.
