No other mountain stands apart from the rest like the way Matterhorn does. One of the most majestic mountains, Matterhorn lies at the foot of Zermatt, a car free village in the canton of Valais. We traveled on Gornergrat Bahn from Zermatt. It was a clear day and we couldn’t stop photographing and gazing at this striking mountain all throughout our trip. Up on the mountain you’ll get sweeping views of the surrounding Alps with Matterhorn standing proud and tall among them. Cogwheel train also known as rack railway takes you to Gornergrat railway station in about thirty minutes. It is said that it is best to take the trip during sunrise and sunset.
We then headed to the Rietberg Museum to catch their Teotihuacan and "Pleasure and intoxication in Indian painting" exhibitions. The museum collections (as well as the gift shop and cafe) are housed in a few separate buildings scattered about a beautiful park setting. A little on the overwhelming side, viewing the special exhibitions took up such a good chunk of time that we didn't even have a chance to see the permanent collection. There probably won't be a next time for us (yeah, I'm gonna be lame and let this be my way of telling you we're moving back to California in July), but I'm sure C and Y will get back there one of these days. Thanks for a great day, friends! It was a fun, full day and made me sad to be leaving so soon. I'm definitely going to miss long Easter weekends!
