City Center

Zermatt is a quaint mountain village and generally speaking, anywhere you stay in Zermatt is convenient. There are restaurants, cafes and tea rooms all over town, and most places are within walking distance. However the Bahnhofstrasse, between the station and the church is considered to be the `center`. Staying in the center of town allows you to be in the heart of all the sights, attractions, and services in the core of this thriving vacation village, where you will also be overlooking the picturesque Matterhorn. The center is also within easy access to both train stations.


Many of the outskirt hotels are just minutes outside the downtown area. You will find these hotels central yet generally in a quieter setting than being within the core center of the village. Staying in the outskirts allows you to enjoy the Valais Alps nature and tranquil beauty of your surroundings. Some of the hotels listed in the outskirts are still within walking distance of the city center, while others may require use of transportation. We suggest checking with the hotel to determine if the location is right for you.
