in the Zermatt ( Valais ) region

of the Swiss Alps

The Matterhorn is probably the most famous mountain in the European Alps. Situated on the border between Switzerland and Italy, it towers over the Swiss town of Zermatt and the Italian town of Breuil-Cervinia in the Val Tournanche.

The Matterhorn has a unique and well-known shape with its four faces facing the four compass points and the north and south faces meeting to form a short east-west summit ridge. The normal route of ascent is by the Hörnli ridge on the northeast.

The name derives from the German words 'matt', meaning valley or meadow, and 'horn', which means 'peak'. 
The Italian name is Monte Cervino and the French name is Mont Cervin or Le Cervin.
