“Great Day and Evening events”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

There are plenty of restaurants to go to in the evening from Japanese to traditional Swiss. There is a fantastic cinema and cocktail bar called Vernissage something which should not be missed.

“Great music at Schwarzee Hotel Resturant/Cafe”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Take the Kliene Matterhorn cable car to first stage, and & go the to hotel, especially lunchtime, 12 - 2, for a great live music group. For Country Rock & 60/70s fans it is a must do, 3 great musicians, happy to talk to guests and play requests. Not loud,
just super sound - we stayed to the end of the session, great. In sunny weather they play on the terrace, ior snow/cold, an indoor stage. Good food & prices too! Go early as it gets packed, very popular.

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We have skied extensively in North America. We were told we had to try Zermatt. Frankly, it was not worth the cost and inconvenience. The skiing is no better, maybe not as good, as Vail, Tahoe, Beaver Creek, etc. The scenery is nice and very unique. However, most disappointing was the apres ski and other activities in Zermatt. Other than expensive restaurants and shopping, there is little to do post-ski, particularly for kids. And the notion that Zermatt is a quaint little town with no cars allowed is false- the streets are routinely clogged with mini-taxis, service vehicles and buses. You have to stay alert- they will not slow down, and since the streets are very narrow, you have to duck and dodge! Overall, this was not worth the 23 hours of travel each way and a 50% premium in cost over what we can do in North America.

“Great place”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

It is a great resort surrounded by high mountains, the air is incredible, the weather was great (31 dec- 3 jan 2013), nice chalets and hotels all over. Except the fact that everything is more expensive , i find no fault to Zermatt.
Major plus is that the slopes doesnt look crowded and you dont need to queu.
One minus: i expected from this marvelous resort to have more Winter lights over the town, on windows, balconies etc Really few buidings had lights and a nice chalet on the hill. Pitty. With more Christmas type lights this resort would have look absolutely magical.

“No other mountain like this one”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Zermatt is a unique and breathtaking mountain. The air is dry with crisp clear air quality. Zermatt is a car free town and you can see snow all year round in Zermatt. Most of the hotels are family-run, therefore, you get good food and sleep comfortably at night. Lot's of restaurants / international cuisine, bar and shops in town.

You'll not be disappointed when you are in Zermatt.
