The Zermatt Festival Experience

Come and enjoy a unique experience in Zermatt, where the stunning beauty of nature enfolds a festive musical programme, bringing young musicians, renowned professors and international stars together in joyful simplicity.

Classical music, jazz, cinema, the tradition has been going on for sixteen years: at the end of the summer, young musicians from the Academy and their professors from the Berlin Philharmonic take over churches, chalets and hotels in the village to practice, rehearse and give concerts.

A stay in Zermatt is always an unforgettable experience with the very special atmosphere of a car-free village (since 1956!) where you come across horses in the main street. And to fully immerse yourself in the magic of the festival, why not take advantage of the special offers from our hotel partners? You will hear musicians rehearsing and perhaps bump into them at breakfast !


We are so pleased to announce that this year’s festival and academy WILL go ahead! We have had to make a few changes to our original plans, but the new re-imagined festival is looking as exciting as ever. We can’t wait to share our new programme with you on the 31st July, from which date you will also be able to purchase your tickets. See you in Zermatt this September!
