How Swiss Alpine cuisine is celebrated

Moments of pure pleasure between gourmet cuisine and après-ski

Clouds Clouds Clouds

There are two sides to the culinary delights of Zermatt. On the one hand, you will be introduced to the noble art of après-ski. Great days on the slopes deserve a fitting end. On the other hand, you can explore the heights of culinary pleasure, almost rivalling the heights of the Matterhorn. We’re talking about the world of gourmet restaurants. Over and above the Valais specialities it offers, Zermatt is renowned as an Alpine hotspot for gourmets. GaultMillau and Guide Michelin have it covered.

Après-ski it’s party time. Because every day in Zermatt is an event. Speeding tirelessly down the slopes by day, earns you the right to let your hair down by night. And that means après-ski – the fitting end to an eventful day on the slopes of Matterhorn ski paradise.
