Varying in style from rustic to modern, much of the accommodation enjoys stunning views of the Matterhorn.

The fine international cuisine in Le Restaurant is complemented by an impressive choice of wines from the wine cellar or, for a more informal atmosphere, choose market-fresh produce and delicious fish dishes in Le Grill Cervin or the Ristorante Capri located on the 4th floor of Le Petit Cervin which serves a taste of the Mediterranean . The hotel also offers a fabulous 'dine around' system with its sister hotels, allowing guests on half board to dine at several different restaurants around the resort.

The resort itself lies at an altitude of 1620 meters at the foot of the world-renowned Matterhorn and surrounded by an additional 38 majestic peaks. Due to its southerly location, Zermatt shares part of its border with Italy and thus enjoys a mild climate with extended periods of sunshine.

Activities

Zermatt is part of the Matterhorn Ski Paradise area, home to 350km of pistes, with a connection to Cervinia in Italy. There’s enough to keep skiers of all standards amused, including the 'Slow Slopes' which are especially useful for beginners and children.

The village itself is a pleasure to explore, whether on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage, with a wealth of shops, restaurants and historic buildings to enjoy. Exploring the mountain is also straightforward with mountain railways and some wonderful walks, whether on foot or on snowshoes. If you would like a really close view of the Matterhorn, a helicopter flight around it is truly breathtaking.

Children under 9 years old travel for free on all the mountain lifts with the Bambinis Free Ski Pass (proof of the child's date of birth will be required).

Zermatt is much more of a cultural center than many other resorts. The Matterhorn Museum is a must-see with fascinating exhibits and the English church is a highlight, especially at Christmas. Every April, the Zermatt Unplugged music festival attracts big name acts.

There are also plenty more active possibilities including the fitness center, indoor tennis and squash, gym, heli-skiing, ice skating, paragliding, stunning walking tours, gorge adventures, ice climbing and tobogganing.

Location & Directions

Zermatt, Switzerland

In the middle of the village, in the heart of the action. Nearest ski lift is Gornergrat station - 5-minute walking distance, Sunnegga Station is between 7 to 10 minute walk

When to go

Zermatt offers excellent conditions throughout a long season. Skiing is well under way by early December and even late November due to high altitude glacial terrain around 4000m. As the season progresses, lower runs offer great conditions too and the skiing below 2000m is appealing when it gets really cold. By April when other resorts can be knee deep in slush, Zermatt will have the best conditions in the Alps. Check out the Zermatt Unplugged music festival in April too.
