The Schweizerhof is perfectly located in the very heart of Zermatt, just a few minutes walk from the Gornergrat railway. 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. Although a beautiful and internationally renowned spot with numerous hotels, restaurants, bars and elegant shops, Zermatt has never lost any of its village charm and both in summer and winter remains an ideal spot for an active, refreshing or relaxing vacation.

Scott Dunn pioneered skiing vacations with childcare and this is an optional extra that many families consider indispensable. We offer childcare from 4 months and ensure that children have the most fantastic vacations and that parents can completely relax with peace of mind that their family is in great hands. Your children can be taken to and collected from ski lessons and will be kept entertained with a varied and imaginative activity program and given healthy lunches and snacks (to be paid locally).

Our childcare staff are qualified professionals and guests here can opt to have a private nanny service. Babysitting is available too. A wide range of equipment for babies and toddlers can be provided to all guests on request, mostly free of charge.

Facilities

There is a great choice of restaurants including Lanna Thai serving delicious Thai cuisine and Prato Borni, a cosy Valais-style restaurant offering Swiss cheese dishes, tasty wood-fire grill specialties and fondues. Being part of the Seiler Hotel Group allows guests booked on half board to dine at 9 of the other Seiler hotel restaurants in Zermatt. A warm and friendly atmosphere with an open fireplace welcomes guests in the hotel bar, where cocktails can be made exactly how you like them. The hotel also has an indoor swimming pool, saunas, steam bath, Jacuzzi and relaxation room.

Activities

Zermatt has plenty to offer guests other than skiing. 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.

Zermatt is much more of a cultural center than many other resorts. The English church is a highlight, especially at Christmas and art exhibitions, concerts, films, walking tours are plentiful. 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

Finally, if all of this sounds exhausting, there are some top quality spas where you can be pampered to your heart’s content.

Location & Directions

Zermatt, Switzerland

The Schweizerhof is in a prime location, in the village center.

Geneva 244km, Zurich 267km, Turin 307km.

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.
