Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zermatt

The Whymper-Stube
Named after a team of extremely brave climbers, The Whymper-Stube offers hearty food in warm, intimate surroundings.
Testa Grigia
Head for heights? Head, er, head to Testa Grigia; at 3,480-metres you'll need a stomach to appreciate its hearty Italian fare and comfortable accommodations.
Summit Ski School
Those who come first win? Apparently so, as Summit was the first ski school to have opened in Zermatt and it's still flourishing.
Stoked
A little healthy competition is good, and that's certainly the case at Stoked; as the original challenger to the Swiss Ski School, this place shows amateurs how it's down with razor-sharp teaching techniques.
Slalom Sport
Ski up at Slalom Sport, with the most extensive range of skiwear, equipment and accessories in Zermatt. What's not to love? Go.
Romantik Hotel Julen
As is suggested by its name, Romantik Hotel Julen has romantic, rustic interiors that would melt the heart of even the most stone-hearted skier.
Hotel Sonne
The Hotel Sonne is worth the steep slog up to its entrance; inside are fabulous four-star interiors and a real family-run vibe.
Hotel Alex
The Hotel Alex has all the makings of an Hg2 favourite, with an in-house swimming pool and tennis courts; the rooms aren't half bad, either. In fact, they're rather lovely.
Glacier Sport
Stock up on all-important ski essentials at Glacier Sport; if you can't find something here, you won't find it anywhere.
Gandegghutte
Italian-inspired mountain food is the name of the game at Gandegghutte; highly recommended is the spag-bol.
Backstage Hotel
Heinz Julen's Backstage Hotel in Zermatt boldly offers guests the chance to live inside art and replicate the story of Genesis in the spa.
