Zermatt used to be a small rural village until very recently and Hinterdorfstrasse has some of the old buildings that make Zermatt so interesting. Hinterdorfstrasse is between the Barnhofstrasse, which is the main shopping street, of modern Zermatt and the river. It is not long...More

Interesting traditional little old backstreet. Various grain stores, drying rooms, houses from past times, right off the main street and only a 2 minute detour so worth doing.

This is a lovely part of Zermatt, dating back to the 16th Century, with traditional timber houses built on stone slabs on top of stilts. The stone slabs were there to keep out vermin. Houses like this can also be found in the surrounding villages...More

To be honest not a huge amount to do in Zermatt and this street is well worth a visit. Fantastic 16th Century buildings and one is a bar(unfortunately shut when we went). One to not miss in Zermatt.

This is a really charming, well preserved little street, One can combine Hinterdorf strasse, Mountaineer's cemetery, the Museum and Church bridge in a small but packed schedule. Would strongly recommend.

Strolled up & down the Hinterdofstrasse for an hour or so looking at the beautifully preserved old wooden structures, so pleased to see history being kept alive.

Hinterdorfstrasse is the old town of Zermatt. I knew about it from travel shows that I watched before coming to Zermatt and it was just like I expected. It's very accessible from the main town of Zermatt. Walking down the street between the old houses...More

The old town is amazingly beautiful. Walking down the lanes with very old, well preserved wooden houses makes you feel a part of the past times. The houses built are splendid. The old town is very small part of the Zermatt but is worth visiting....More
