Our beautiful black-nosed sheep - true Zermatters - will certainly take your heart by storm! Especially when you meet them in nature, where they feel most at home. You can hardly decide whether the animals are just incredibly cute or rather really imposing. It's probably both, because the white fur with the black spots and the googly eyes contrast with the spiral-shaped, imposing horns.
From July to September, our "black noses" graze at the foot of the Matterhorn, on the Gornergrat. Would you like to visit them? No problem! To make it easy for you to find the animals, they will be wearing GPS-tracked collars as of this summer. Use the app to track the sheep's signal and follow the path. The shepherdess, who accompanies the flock throughout the summer and is looking forward to your visit on the Gornergrat, will also be happy to answer all your questions about the animals.
More information about the "Meet the Sheep" can be found here.
With our "Black-nose sheep package" we offer you the unique opportunity to combine an overnight stay, culinary delights, relaxation in the SPA and a visit to the sheep.
Even without a package, you can buy tickets on site at the reception. The shepherdess is on site Tuesdays to Sundays for explanations.
