The destination Zermatt – Matterhorn has been the proud holder of a "Family Destination" Seal of Approval since 2013. The tourist resort would like to continue with its family friendly strategy and therefore is launching a family promotion.
Visitor’s Tax Relief
Children up to age nine no longer pay visitor’s tax now. Furthermore, if parents buy a multi-day ski ticket, children up to age nine receive a Wolli Card, which is valid for an entire fiscal year (until the end of October). With the Wolli Card, children enjoy unlimited travel on the mountain lifts, free accommodations in various hotels and benefit from other special offers. These include free biking courses, sports equipment rentals, children’s menus, train trips and museum admissions.
New Family Activities
In addition to the Wolli Card, the destination is expanding the activity offerings for children and youngsters as part of the family promotion. For example, there is a treasure hunt continuing throughout the year and mountain cart rides beginning in the summer of 2018.
Background About the Promotion
"Children are our VIPs," said Daniel Luggen, the director of tourism for the Zermatt – Matterhorn destination, "because children are our guests for the future." For this reason, this tourist resort decided to undertake this family promotion. The initiative intentionally includes the entire destination. "Strong and focussed collaboration throughout the destination is our strategy in order to stay true to the desires of our guests while remaining a successful tourist destination," continued Luggen.
