Shopping Zermatt Style
Zermatt Switzerland is best known for being a fantastic Swiss ski resort; however, just as with everything in Zermatt the shipping is world-class. Zermatt is mostly a pedestrian village as no combustion cars have been allowed within the city limits for many years. Therefore, visitors to this beautiful ski resort can easily walk through the quaint village streets to visit unique boutiques and shops. Guests can stroll down the alleys and lanes to window shop, stopping at one of the many cafes or bars along the way for a relaxing meal or light snack before returning to shopping for premium brand names and local handcrafted souvenirs. Whether you are searching for the latest fashion trend, sports equipment or famous Swiss watches, you can find the perfect shop along the streets of Zermatt.
If you are in the mood for fashion, you can stop in the Lorenz Bach store to shop for quality men’s clothing by Ralph Lauren and La Martina. The Boutique Harlem, Boutique Luma, Sportina and The Shoe Shop are all favorites of women shopping in Zermatt. Of course, you will want to shop for quality ski apparel and sportswear while in Zermatt. Visit the Jack Wolfskin store for fine sportswear by such famous companies as The Northface or stop by the Timberland store for winter apparel.
Do not leave Zermatt without shopping for luxury items such as Swiss watches, Swiss knifes and Swiss chocolates. Switzerland is famous for its watches, knives and chocolates and you can find the best variety right in downtown Zermatt. In addition to these traditional Swiss items, you can find unique local and handcrafted items in the small shops and boutiques that line the busy streets. Jewelry stores, bookstores and clothing stores are abundant in Zermatt providing excellent shopping opportunities for tourists. The friendly storeowners and staff are eager to help customers with each purchase and can provide helpful information to customers searching for the perfect souvenir or gift to take back home from their Zermatt vacation. If you are purchasing large items, ask if the store will deliver to your hotel – many stores will be happy to hold items for you until you have finished shopping or deliver the items to your hotel for you.
Shopping in Zermatt is almost as exciting and rewarding as a day on the Matterhorn ski slopes!
