Zermatt Accommodation

The sprawling old mountain village offers a broad range of accommodation. Several wonderful ski in ski out options exist high above the town of Zermatt. In Zermatt itself, accommodation features many 4 & 5 star hotels where you can spend money galore and enjoy the luxury, fabulous food and stunning views of the dramatic Matterhorn. The beauty of Zermatt though is that every budget & taste is catered for, allowing everyone to experience their own perfect accommodation selection.

There is negligible ski-in ski-out accommodations in Zermatt village itself and what exists is not centrally located. The “town lifts” are the Gornergrat railway opposite the Zermatt train station, the Sunnegga funicular past the river and the Furi gondola - a 1km walk from the centre of town. Electric taxis, hotels shuttles & a bus system aid transportation between accommodation & lifts. Walking is nice too!

Other Accommodation Options

If Zermatt is booked out or just too expensive for your needs, an alternative is staying off the mountain in the nearby village of Täsch or further down the valley in the larger cities of Visp or Brig. All options will involve a train trip to Zermatt before getting to the ski lifts. Tasch is the final town before Zermatt where private cars can drive up the valley. Its numerous hotels can provide free parking, a bonus when staying there, as opposed to everyone else having to pay for parking if staying in Zermatt. Regardless of the alternatives, we recommend staying at least 2-3 nights in Zermatt itself to get the full experience of this unique location.
