4.4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web
Revisit the times of the first Alpine pioneers and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere at Intercontinental Church Society. Perched on a ledge overlooking the village of Zermatt, this quaint church dates back to the 19th century, when it was built for the resort's English visitors who used the town as a base camp for conquering the mighty Matterhorn. Today it serves as an important monument to Zermatt's history. Step inside to see several memorial plaques commemorating mountaineers; Reverend Charles Hudson, who lost his life during the first ascent of the Matterhorn, is buried underneath the altar. Services in English are held regularly. The church's cemetery is another historical site worth visiting.
