Fantastic food

In the evening, enjoy a four course fine dining meal created by resident chef Reinhold Wrobel. The menu represents authentic regional cuisine, with the use of fresh local produce. Uncorked is an intimate and cosy bistro style restaurant, with over 80 regional wines and freshly prepared light bites, it is a lovely spot to admire views of the Matterhorn with friends and family.

The hotel has a traditional alpine style with natural wood and stone used throughout, each room varies in style and design, creating a warm and cosy retreat after a day of skiing. The hotel features a residence only spa, featuring two whirlpools, a Finnish sauna and steam room, plus a relaxation area with waterbeds and a Kneipp basin.

Even without its iconic Matterhorn, Zermatt would surely be one of the world’s top ski resorts. It has an excellent ski area at high-altitude, and the breath taking views of Europe’s most famous peak add an unbeatable and unique crowning glory. The village is car-free apart from electric cars and horse-drawn carriages. Just off the bustling Bahnhofstrasse you'll find quaint little streets, elegant boutiques, cosy bars and mouth-watering chocolate shops.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Zermatt

With direct access to the slopes in either direction from the village centre - you'll be on the mountain in no time! Travel via cable car, funicular or the famous Gornergrat mountain railway, which takes you on a spectacular ride up to 3089 metres, where you'll have the best views of the Gorner glacier. To reach the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, take the final stage of the 3S Gondola to Europe's highest mountain station at Klein Matterhorn 3883 metres. From the top, you can choose to ski over to Zermatt’s Italian neighbour, Cervinia, for the day on the International lift pass. If you're up for a challenge take on the Matterhorn Ski Safari - attempt to cover 10,000 – 12,000 metres of altitude without skiing the same slope or taking the same lift twice.

The new Matterhorn Alpine Crossing, opening in 2023, completes the continuous cable car link between Switzerland and Italy making it possible for non-skiers to travel between the two countries, as well as skiers in the winter.
