One of the top ski resorts in the world, Zermatt boasts a huge ski area at high-altitude, with breathtaking views of the iconic Matterhorn. The skiing is accessible from the village centre via cable car, funicular or the famous Gornergrat mountain train, which takes you on a spectacular ride up to 3089m and rewards you with fantastic views of the glacier. You can choose to ski over to Zermatt’s Italian neighbour, Cervinia, for the day on the whole area lift pass, or take on the challenge of the Matterhorn ski safari, where you cover 10,000 – 12,000m of altitude without skiing the same slope or taking the same lift twice! The charming village is traffic-free apart from electric carts and horse-drawn carriages and the quaint little streets offer a mix of elegant boutiques, cosy bars and mouth-watering chocolate shops. Zermatt is known for its excellent mountain restaurants such as ‘Chez Vrony’ in the Sunnegga area, and for its lively varied après-ski and nightlife.
In a convenient position just 2 minutes’ walk from Zermatt’s main street and Gornergrat rack railway for access to the skiing, the Atlanta is a simple, good-value accommodation choice for those wanting a relaxed atmosphere with good access to all this fantastic resort has to offer.
