Zermatts Best Cigar Lounges
Zermatt is the hiking and winter sports capital of Switzerland’s Valais region. It lies in an alpine valley about 1,600 meters above sea level at the bottom of the pyramid-shaped Matterhorn peak. The town boasts a vibrant après-ski culture and teems with chic restaurants, posh hotels, quaint shops, stunning luxury chalets, and charming bars as well as some of the best cigar lounges.
(to note – most of our luxury chalets in Zermatt don’t allow smoking inside, however nearly all of our properties have balconies with breathtaking Matterhorn views perfect for a cigar at any time of the day!)
