Zermatt is almost a 100% car free village at the base of the Matterhorn. There are electric cars that are allowed in the village but they are only a few. And as such you will be truly be delighted to see dozens of old fashioned horse drawn carriages as they passes through the snow filled streets of Zermatt.
