The Matterhorn Mountain, part of the Alps Mountain range, is one of the highest mountain peaks and is an excellent destination for your family holidays in Europe. If you think the Matterhorn looks familiar as you gaze up at it from your unique cottage, that’s because the famous Toblerone chocolate company use the Matterhorn for their logo and as inspiration for the shape of their popular chocolate bars.
