Me and my brother stayed at Schwarzsee for a night during the summer. we got in late (around 8PM), and dinner was at 7PM... Tanja and Dave, the managers, were the hosts that night, and they said it wasn't a problem :) The food was really good, the view was amazing of course (you can't compete with the Matterhorn!) and...

Cable car to Furi and then on to Schwarzsee. Divine mug of hot chocolate on arrival and friendly staff, not expensive considering location, sublime and dramatic views of the Matterhorn. Beautiful walk back down through Zmutt, highly recommended. Could be done reverse but would need higher level of fitness

We first stopped at this restaurant on a cloudy day on our way back from Glacier Paradise. We really wanted to see the view on a clear day and enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and staff from our first trip so we decided to make another stop here on our last day in Zermatt. It was a beautiful day so we... More

Although I have been hiking in the region before, it is great to actually spend the night so close to Matterhorn. Plus there was the lunar eclipse! Even though I was here on my own, I instantly found friends. Thanks for a unique experience, Tanja & Dave!

The host and staff were very friendly and helpful, they gave us tips on hiking on the country side and tips on how to attract the Black Nosed Sheep. We were fascinated by the views from the room we had. It was clean functional and comfortable.

This is certainly one of the places to be when your are in Zermatt. I have been several times in Zermatt, but this wasthe first time we had a room in this great mountain hotel. Very close to the Matterhorn, nice people and a great atmosphere. The only reason I don't give it 5 starts is that dinner is mediocre.... More

It is very near Matterhorn so you will have a beautyfull view. The rooms are very simpel, but you do not need anything. There is a beautyfull terrace with live music. It was fantastic to sit and Watch Matterhorn there.

The view from the restaurant is awesome. The waitress was attentive and nice! However, the price-value-ratio is horrible. The meat is not nice, cheese is lame and that for the price asked is a joke. The toilets were extremely dirty. We left pretty quick and found a nice alternative on the way down!

I have spent many days and nights in Zermatt and the surrounding mountains and every trip starts with reserving the nights I'll stay at the Schwarzsee. Summer or winter it is a guarantee of great value, warm hospitality, and a great music vibe. Don't come to this area without stopping by for at least a meal or a drink on... More

After a half day of walking in the hot sunshine, we stopped for a liquid and solid lunch. Wonderful beer 🍺 and lovely lunch - chicken pasta and king prawn salad. All in sight of one of the best landmarks in the walking 🚶 world. Do not miss this restaurant when you get off the lift at Schwarzsee.
