Tour of the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof

At the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof, you can enjoy winter at its most spectacular. Explore the Zermatterhof on a video tour. Joie de vivre, both indoors and out. During the day, the snow crystals sparkle in the sun, and at night, when the temperatures drop, the stars shine in the heavens like diamonds. Rafael Biner

The small grand hotel

While you are with us, you have all the time in the world. Time to do nothing at all; time to let time slip away. An experience like this is only possible in a true grand hotel. A hotel designed for spending time in. A hotel where time means something different from what it means in the city. This rates highly!
