    Reasonable, Friendly Hotel


    Friendly, family-run hotel about a 10-minute walk from the railway station. The common areas have an old-style woody feel, while the rooms are more modern and comfortable. Rooms with ensuite facilities are available, though you can save some money if you opt for the "shower down the hall." Decent buffet breakfast is included and served in the pleasant breakfast room. Downstairs is Restaurant Weisshorn, which serves good quality dinner at reasonable prices (by Swiss standards, anyway).

    Unique Quality: - Friendly and relatively inexpensive for the area
    - Great views from most rooms -- some with "peek-a-boo" views of the Matterhorn
    - Breakfast included
    - Caters to hikers, skiers, mountain climbers, and backpackers
    - Open year-round

    Directions: From the train station, turn right (towards the Matterhorn). Keep walking past the Zermatterhof, the Catholic Church, and the Coop. Hotel is on the left, next to Restaurant du Pont.

"Zermatt and the Matterhorn"

Why does anyone go to the crowded, expensive, and touristy Zermatt? See the photo above -- that's why. No doubt, there are a number of disadvantages, not the least of which its isolated, "dead-end" location at the end of a 2-hour private railway that doesn't accept Eurailpasses (Swisspasses ARE accepted, however). When the weather is bad, there really isn't a lot to do, and most would be well advised to go elsewhere. When the weather is fine, however, the hikes and views are among the best in Europe. My favorite place to stay is the Hotel Weisshorn, which, while not cheap, is a reasonable, friendly, and comfortable place to stay.

"The Bernese Oberland and Kandersteg"

Certainly my favorite area to visit in Switzerland is the Bernese Oberland. While most people like to visit the Jungfrau and its famous resorts of Grindelwald, Muerren, and Interlaken (and of course the Stevesian Fundamentalist pilgrimage destination of Gimmelwald), I prefer the ambiance of the area one valley over in Kandersteg. While Kandersteg is no secret, it's just far enough off the beaten path to keep away from the tour bus crowd. It's a pleasant mix of backpackers, hikers, hang gliding enthusiasts, Swiss vacationers, and independent tourists enjoying a pleasant vacation from reality in idyllic surroundings. Kandersteg is easy to get to by car and rail, and has a wide variety of accommodations. My favorite hotel-restaurant is the Bernerhof, though many others swear by the Hotel-Restaurant Adler next door.

"Appenzell and the Seealpsee"

A bit off the beaten path is the canton of Appenzell-Innerrhoden. While its capital, Appenzell, is very famous and can be a tourist zoo during peak season, the area at the end of the line of the Appenzell Bahn is much less so. If you continue on to the village of Wasserauen (itself little more than a wide spot in the road), you have the opportunity to visit some less-travelled areas and some beautiful scenery. There are a pair of mountain huts on the Seealpsee, about a 40 minute hike from the train station (NOTE: the trail to the Seealpsee is very good, but some may consider the climb extremely steep and strenuous. Pack light.). We stayed at the Berggasthaus Seealpsee, right on the lake. From the Seealpsee, you have some great hiking opportunities to the nearby Ebenalp, the famous Berggasthaus Aescher, and even up to the peak of the Säntis if the conditions are right and you're in good shape.

October : Shopping & Hotels

by Bashir-1

(1) If I arrive at Zermat in early October, how will be the weather?

(2) I heard about Bahnhofstrasse shops. Is it the main shopping street? Are there any other alley shopping centers?

(3) How far is this Bahnhofstrasse alley to : Allalin hotel & Weisshorn hotel?

(4) How to go from Zermatt to Munich?

(1) Zermatt (1'600m) and Alpine region has a specific micro-climate. Average temperature will around 8 degre celsius during the day (beginning October), rain and first snows could occur. But be aware that weather conditions could change quickly at this altitude.
(2) Bahnofstrasse is the main street with many shops from the Railwaystation (Bahnhof in German) to the Church. You will find every thing you need, especially luxury goods as watch, jewellery, Swiss knifes and of course Swiss chocolate ;-)
(3) Zermatt is a small village all location are easily reachable by short walk distance or you could use eletrical local bus or taxi. Allalin and Weisshorn is very close to the Church and it is a 10min walk from the railwaystation via Bahnofstrasse.
(4) See train specialist Risberg reply above...

(1) The weather will be cold, especially if you intend on going up into the mountains around Zermatt.. at the "small Matterhorn", there is eternal snow, and even in mid-summer one needs to be equiped for the cold..
(2) Banhoff Strasse has all the shops, mainly the more luxurious ones.. if you want something a little different, normal shops or just original shops selling clothes,.. go to the little pedestrian streets in old town.. from station, start folowin river on the left in direction of lake.. from there take parallel road which is all pedestrians.. full of charm, you'll certainly also want to stop for a drink.. make sure you explore the little alley ways and all.. full of charm..
