Winter News from Zermatt, Part II

01/11/2016

This winter season, Zermatt-Matterhorn once again offers a complete range of new things: new shops, beautiful wellness facilities, a new game for those who stayed at home, and much more. 

The Hotel Continental is now a member of the Matterhorn Group, the corporation of the Burgergemeinde of Zermatt. From the beginning of the winter season, the in-house hostess is Astrid Weber. The hotelier couple Mirja and Paul Kronig is semi-retired but remain as part of the “Nid zum lose” trio on Sunday evenings in winter with Swiss accordion, singer and contrabass.

News from the World of Wellness

The Hotel Bristol has made a major investment in the new wellness facility in the past months. Old wood and natural stone dominate, which creates a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. In addition, there is a massage room for treatments.
The Parkhotel Beau Site has fostered its inner life forever. This tradition-rich property, which opened in 1907, has renewed its dramatic sauna landscape. But the original stonewalls can still be seen and have been beautifully carved out once again. On offer: steam bath, vitarium, Finnish sauna, ice fountains and much more.
In the Hotel Mont Cervin Palace, the nescens products are now being used in the treatment area of the spa for the first time. They are a combination of medicine, cosmetics and pharmacy, and are also used in other Swiss hotellerie five-star properties. 

News from the Shops and Cafés

Along the Bahnhofstrasse inside the Hotel Walliserhof, a new Omega watch boutique opens at the beginning of December. A selection with the trendy models of the Swiss watch for ladies and gentlemen is available. On the other side of the street, the two-storey Café Le Petit Royal is open once again after a three-year break. Offered is the best coffee brewed in a Cimbali press machine, along with hot chocolate and sinful sweets. All of this in a comfortable ambiance.

Playfully Climb the Matterhorn

In Zermatt, you can play with the Matterhorn again starting on 10 December. This means the mountain is at the centre of this parlour game. The players (from age 8) can be the first to climb the Matterhorn with luck, risk and tactics. The game has rules in German, English, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch. Start with the games, the Matterhorn quiz and fun at Fernanda’s Swiss design and products, Bahnhofstrasse 39 on 10 December 2016.
