Thank you to all who read and/or respond to this somewhat whimsical thread

I am planning a trip to Zermatt and am trying to find out the name of a hotel in Zermatt that was used in the filming of the children’s Disney movie “Condorman,” which was released back in 1981.

I realize that it is possible that the hotel does not exist anymore, or that it was, in fact, not a hotel but a large residence made to look like a hotel for the filming of the movie. Still, one never knows until she tries .

If anyone knows this information, I would be ever so grateful, as this is going to be a surprise for my boyfriend, who grew up loving that movie and dreaming of staying in that hotel.

Thank you

Hi Sprice,
i know the hotel – it was actually a restaurant/hotel – it’s called the ‘sonnenblick’ and was one of my old haunts – it got ripped down in 2005 and was rebuilt and is now called ‘sonnematte’ (or something)…
i’ll post some pics tomorrow as soon as i find the old ones and go make some new ones tomorrow
greets from right around the corner of the place you’re talking about

Wow, quite a difference! Is it still a hotel, looking like its being changed into flats or something?
What fantastic weather!
