Built at the base of the Matterhorn, a hypnotic 4,478m high geological wonder often nicknamed The Toblerone Mountain, Zermatt is a rustic Alpine village that’s been a prized destination on explorer’s maps since the 1470’s.
Zermatt is quintessential provincial Swiss charm, with rows of chocolate box chalets, charming cobblestone lanes, and farmhouses and homes that marry grand Belle-Époque drama with earthy materials.
A hotspot for foodies, the village boasts some 30+ restaurants, 21 of which were reviewed in the 2014 edition of Gault Millau, several that are also Michelin-starred locations. There is also a thriving and varied Après ski scene with some 50 bars, including the famous Elsie's Bar - ideal for a glass of fizz before returning for a romantic stroll in the crisp air.
