The Zermatterhof has been welcoming illustrious guests from all over the world since 1879. The old families of Zermatt, the burghers, constructed the Grand Hotel themselves, without payment.
The village vicar at that time, Josef Ruden, came up with an unusual idea to help his congregation: the oldest families in the area – the burghers of Zermatt – should take economic advantage of the surge in tourism by building a hotel.
The Grand Hotel Zermatterhof
Our rooms and suites are your personal refuge whenever you want complete privacy.
Newly renovated, they offer all the conveniences that you would expect of a room in a hotel of the highest calibre. True to the grand hotel ethos, they are not the product of a robotic search through a fashionable interior design catalogue, but are places you can really live in.
