Roger Taylor, the Queen drummer, offers tips on Zermatt’s highlights, from the spectacular Matterhorn to the Gornergrat railway

Why Zermatt?

I love skiing and I believe Zermatt is the perfect ski resort, with more than a dozen or so peaks towering at 4,000 metres high in the surrounding area. It also has some of the best-looking mountains across the globe including the Matterhorn, which is probably the most spectacular peak in the world. More HERE
