Zermatt: „Family Destination“


Zermatt loves it when families with children come to visit. This is why Zermatt – Matterhorn has earned again the label „Family Destination", given by the Swiss Federation of Tourism STV.

The label is granted regularely. Before the label can be awarded a lot of controls are made. Zermatt – Matterhorn has obtained the label „Family Destination" for the years 2016 to 2018.  The staff of the hotels, holiday homes and cable cars are looking forward to meeting the children. Daniel Luggen, director of Zermatt says about the distinction: „The label is the acknowledgement of our labour. Families are one of the most important guest groups of Zermatt."

Skiing at low costs

Children up to nine years of age do not have to pay for the calbe car rides. The elder brothers and sisters also have favourable discounts, on Saturday even free of charge. In the restaurants there are menus especially for children. Hotel staff is pleased to help the children. Ski teachers show how children get the best first experience on skis. And once in a while Wolli, the mascotte of Zermatt, comes to see the children at Sunnegga, at Wolli’s park for beginners.
