Hi loves, collecting new travel destinations I have never been so far is such a big thing for me always. I planned to go to Zermatt since 2 years as I am a big fan of Switzerland – just love their classy and calm style. But when we were on our way to Zermatt I was not really amused: a 12 hours drive from Munich and we had to use 2 car trains and another normal train from Täsch till we reached the car free winter wonderland. Maybe we should go to Bali in that time? NOOOO everything was worth the travel when we saw this romantic village settled around famous mountain Matterhorn!
I always search for super cozy chalets while being in the mountains. I just love it more than modern hotels but stunning Matthiol Boutique Hotel offers both in one. A real wooden chalet feeling but everything is super chic, brand new and also very luxurious. Beside our super cool bath tube we had our own private wood sauna and HAMAM in their SPA Rooms.
How amazing is that? I also really loved the complimentary teatime in the afternoon. After you come back from the cold sunny winter wonderland you can enjoy some hot tea with handmade pastries and afterwords having a relaxing spa time in your own room. Nobody else to share the sauna with is pure luxury, isn’t it?
In winter it is tricky to pack many different cool outfits as they need so much space in the luggage. So I always try to find my one fav winter boot per trip and style everything around it. This time I ordered cool white Moon Boots with some fake fur details and they really run with everything! Also I became such a big fan from &other stories in the past month. I love their Paris and LA collections. When the brand launched everything just looked too casual for me but now they have the coolest stuff like color blocking sweaters!
The reason why I came to Zermatt was an Instagram picture from @chezvroni. I was just blown away from the Matterhorn view and really it is even better in real life. The only thing again is the way to get there: really good with ski not really easy by feed. We did a little Moon Boot snow hike about 1 hour. When I saw the yummy desert variation every step was worth it!
Terrace at Hotel Schönegg
The morst beautiful view and coolest after ski location you will defiantly find at Chalet Schönegg. As every Relais et Chateau property the hotel is characterised by a stunning location with a beautiful view all over Zermatt and the Matterhorn plus a very nice terrace for lunch with a big selection of exclusive wines in the sun. So make sure you do not forget your coolest sunnies!
Adé Zermatt, I will definitely come back when the next winter arrives!
