Hospitality

Tradition at Schlosshotel Zermatt

You are a very welcome guest at our hotel, as we have a tradition of hospitality which is an important part of our family and our way of life.

Here is a brief history of Schlosshotel Zermatt, which has been a family-run company for over 30 years.

In 1964, Lothar Stöpfer, an artist and chef from Zermatt, planned the construction of the «Tenne» guest house. To this end, he bought five old barns near Randa, dismantled them, and used the typical dark wood to build the «Tenne». The hotel opened in 1965. Thus begins the story of our hotel, which was once one of the best restaurants and is now one of the most welcoming hotels in Zermatt.

In October 1984, the family of Alex Perren, who were long-established residents of Zermatt, acquired the hotel. They renovated the hotel from the ground up in just five months. Some of the hotel rooms were decorated in Art Nouveau style, while others were given a rustic Alpine look, with a lot of solid wood.

In 2011, Alex Perren Junior and his wife Pamela took over the «Schlosshotel Tenne». The couple dedicate themselves to continuing the tradition of hospitality and put their heart and soul into ensuring the well-being of their guests. Just one year after they took over, the hotel underwent a huge redesign, renovation and extension, which culminated in 49 new, individual and stylish hotel rooms and suites. During this transformation, the hosts decided against having their own restaurant and instead turned the establishment into the four-star hotel with breakfast only. The former «Tenne» was given a new name: «Schlosshotel Zermatt» now stands for relaxing, luxury holidays in Zermatt.
