It's a record: 5 Michelin stars

Zermatt has never had as many Michelin stars as it does in 2019; the Matterhorn village now has five stars, two more than last year. The Omnia and the Alpine Gourmet Prato Borni have both been awarded one star. The After Seven retained its two stars and the Ristorante Capri still has one star.

Fuchs bakery acquires Biner

As of 30 April 2019, Bäckerei Pius Fuchs AG will take over the production and some of the staff of Bäckerei Biner, which is closing as a new manager could not be found. However, customers won't need to go without their favourite Biner products, as the Fuchs range will be expanded to include some Bäckerei Biner specialities. The acquisition benefits both parties; Bäckerei Biner couldn't find a new manager and Bäckerei Fuchs was looking for a larger bakery.
