Christmas in Zermatt
First of all I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!!! Please excuse me for the long absence...
It is again that time of the year and in my opinion the nicest time.
When Christmas comes, Zermatt is a marvelous place to get together with family and friends. It has been a tradition in my family for many years, so I though I'd share with you my favorite places in this beautiful village at the feet of the Matterhorn.
How does a perfect day in Zermatt look like?
Skiing makes you hungry, therefore I highly recommend you to make a lunch stop and visit Chez Vrony. This picturesque mountain restaurant offers you delicious, culinary food from the region and a great atmosphere too. My personal favourite the Vrony Burger is their signature dish and it is what I would call a "gourmet after ski fuel". The staff, the views and the ambiance are unique. A place I always come back when I'm in Zermatt. Thanks Vrony!!
Finalize your ski day with a (few) Bombardino(s) at the Cervo Après Ski. Located at the bottom of the valley downhill, Cervo is the place to be. The stylish alpine boutique hotel offers great cuisine too apart from the outstanding after ski parties.
Followed to the Après Ski you should immerse in to the SPA of the palace. The heated outside pool and the saunas will help you recovering for the night. Also when it comes to acommodation, this is the greatest hotel no doubt. Completely rennovated just a year ago the staff here provides "hospitality by heart". It has been owned by the hotel pioneer family Seiler for over 150 years now. The front rooms offer outstanding views of the Matterhorn.

To finalize the day you should have dinner at Schäferstübli "Shepheards Lounge". This traditional but stylish restaurant is one of Zermatt's best kept secrets and I love coming back here. The rustic and cozy ambiance around the wood-fire grill in the middle of the restaurant is delightful and the lamb is delicious. The staff is one of the friendlist and very helpful. Don't leave the restaurant without trying their chocolate fondant.
Enjoy your time in Zermatt and if you wish to have a personalized advice just drop me a line here...
See you all very soon!!
