Spanning over a mountain stream, Photopoint Kirchbrucke bridge offers unobstructed views of the legendary Matterhorn. Pack your camera and get there early in the morning, since the spot is quite popular with tourists and gets easily crowded. You can go down a stairway to get closer to the waterway, but the upper level of the bridge provides better photo opportunities. The play of light and color is most beautiful with the first and the last rays of sunlight. The entire village is a pedestrian zone perfect for strolling around.
