Hi, I will be traveling to Zermatt for the first time and am concered about how much I should be expecting to spend/take for dining and nightlife. I am looking to be as frugal as possible, but am not sure if I can achieve that staying Zermatt! ;)

Hi there,

I'm a Swiss, but I've been in Zermatt last summer for the first time. If you know about the Swiss prices in general, Zermatt will not be much more expensive than other places, I even thought that drinks at the bar and the food in the restaurant were somewhat cheaper than in Zurich or Basel. The "only" expensive thing in Zermatt I think is accommodation for which the prices are higher than in other places in Switzerland.

Of course if you plan to ride the "Gornergrat"train, this is an expensive thing to do...but you could always walk (in summer time)

hope this was any help

Hi! Thanks for responding so quickly! That does make me feel somewhat better as my accommodations are already cared for! ;)

Were there any particular places you would recommend eating/drinking?
