In spring and summer 2023, the three-star Bristol Hotel located in the centre of Zermatt equipped its hotel roof with integrated solar panels. The solar power became operational from the start of August and now covers around a third of the hotel’s consumption.

Over this period, more than 13 MWh of electricity have been produced, saving 4,990 kg of CO2 already – which equates to 149 planted trees.  

The family-friendly hotel is located only 10 minutes from the Sunnegga valley station and a stone’s throw from the bus stop, offering transport by electric bus to the Matterhorn valley station every 10 minutes. The hotel has 44 cosily furnished rooms, mostly with balconies and many with enchanting views of the Matterhorn.
