Visit Zermatt and you can’t help but be awed by the presence of the Matterhorn. The stark angular peak that soars up into the sky presides over Zermatt like a benevolent God, creating majesty and mystery in equal measure.
It’s an inspirational mountain so it’s of no great surprise that you’ll find some of the finest dining in the Alps in this small town and on the slopes surrounding it. You’ll want to stay longer than a week however – over 100 restaurants bask in the Matterhorn’s glory, serving everything from seven-course gastronomic feasts in a restaurant like Zum See, to simple local specialities of fondue and rösti.
Pick a restaurant with a view of the Toblerone summit, and tuck in – there’s no need to be too fussy about which one. In the shadow of the Matterhorn you’re certain to be dining in style.
