Edelweiss

Beautifully perched on a rock, just 45 minutes walk up from Zermatt town, Edelweiss is an idyllic spot for a refreshing drink on longer hikes, a leisurely lunch, rustic dinner or over night stay.

The sunny terrace offers unique and stunning views across Zermatt, toward Rothorn and Gornergrat.

Our cozy pension accommodation offers Single, Double or 5 pax rooms.

We look forward greatly to welcoming you,

Rico and Pip
