Food experience: The cheese fondue is a must in Zermatt. We did it twice and loved both places. It is a heavy meal, but worth it. Adventurous activities done: We zip lined at the family fun park at the end of Zermatt. It was easy to find and had the perfect course for kids. Sightseeing places: Riding the cable car to glacier paradise to see the Matterhorn. Romantic experience: Having a drink in glacier paradise was a real treat.
