Located in the mountains of Switzerland, the Backstage Hotel in Zermatt is a beautifully designed luxury option for those looking for the ultimate getaway. Every piece of furniture in this hotel is made by hand in the studio of the artist, architect, and designer Heinz Julen. With walnut, chrome, and velvet accents, the modern rooms offer extraordinary mountain views. There are also six split-level glass cube-style units, including loft bedrooms.
Just a 3-minute walk from the mountain rack Gornergrat railway and a 4-minute walk from the Matterhorn Ski Paradise resort, travelers are never far from a fun adventure. High up in the mountains, guests won’t be hungry as the Backstage Hotel is home to After Seven, a restaurant designed by a Swiss chef, Ivo Adam. The restaurant’s tagline is: "After seven o’clock, you will be a part of a new culinary expedition.” Plus, breakfast is free!
With a cinema, spa, and on-site art gallery, travelers will have a great time. Adventure seekers will find a sports shop within the Backstage Hotel with ski rentals and all other equipment ones may need. The Vernissage Lounge Bar is a great place to let loose and enjoy a concert after a long day exploring the mountains. If you’re lucky enough to end up at Backstage in April, don’t miss the Zermatt Unplugged Music Festival, a local acoustic music festival that’s been taking place since 2007.
