Welcome! Feel yourself at home

Since generations we are living in the montains, we climb them, trek around them or with the bike or do ski touring or heliskiing. We both come from montain guide families and Richard is a professional mountain guide and ski teacher.

Since 2012 we run the Gandegg Hut on 3030meters of altitude directly above Zermatt, near the glacier of Theodul.


In Zermatt und and worldwide

Since more than 20 years I’m active as a mountain guide and ski teacher around the world. So I can recommend and guide you to the best slopes and the most fascinating routes.

Arrival to Zermatt

Zermatt - The village without cars

Zermatt is located at the foot of the Mattehorn in the Valaisan Alps in south of Switzerland at 1620m of altitude.
This idyllic mountain village is one of the most important summer-winter holiday destination in Switzerland.

Our village is surrounded by stunning 38 out the 76 fourthousanders of Europe.
The ski area is connected with the one of Cervinia - Italy, by the Theodulpath 3300m and Testa Grigia.
Zermatt is car free! No motor  vehicles are allowed in town.

Horse slegges and carriages, electro-cars and bicycles are the only allowed means of transportations.
This is the best requirement for a relaxing and recreative holiday.
