3100 Kulm is surrounded by 29 four-thousanders. This is the highest hotel in the Swiss Alps, and up here the air pressure and the oxygen level is much different from the values we are used to.

The place can be reached by the Gornergrat Bahn, leaving from Zermatt. The ride takes about 40 minutes.

The rooms on the west side of the hotel have an amazing view of the Matterhorn. The rooms on the south side face Monte Rosa. The hotel has no regular room numbers. All the rooms are named after one of the peaks, and the height of the peak gives the room number. The design is minimalist, and dominated by Swiss pine wood.

The Hotel has two restaurants. One is accessible for the tourists, and one is only for hotel guests. Latter named Vis-á-Vis offers culinary classics and uses local products. The Panorama Self buffet is self-service restaurant, accessible for the tourist as well. It offers a selection of fresh salads, sandwiches or warm dishes.
