Scottish and Bavarian Curling
16 Outdoor Ice Rinks in Zermatt Are There for Scottish and Bavarian curling.
Not to worry: No one needs to bring the curling gear as was the case with the Scottish guests back in the 1920s. They schlepped their granite stones in their luggage so that they did not have to do without their curling fun before the backdrop of the Matterhorn.
The Zermatt Curling Club is one of the most successful in Switzerland. The top curlers in the world trained on Zermatt’s ice. The most famous Zermatt curler is Diego Perren. He won the Olympic gold medal in 1998 with the Lausanne Olympique team.
In the third week of January, Zermatt hosts one of the largest and most beautiful open-air curling tournaments in Europe, the Horu Trophy. Over 60 teams from throughout Europe make the trip to Zermatt to compete.
