Epic Europe



The crown jewel in Alexander Seiler's hotel empire, the Mont Cervin Palace defines Zermatt luxury accommodation and historic hospitality. Located in the heart of Zermatt, the “MCP” has been entertaining visitors for than 150 years.  One of the "Leading Hotels of the World", the Mont Cervin is comprised of several different buildings, each with its' own character, but sharing the same 5-star amenities.


The 165 rooms are comfortable, classic, and depending on guests' preference, quite modern. But if a taste of the old Zermatt is what you're after, the Mont Cervin Palace blends the best of the old and new with timeless luxury.


Chalet-style rooms are found in the Petit Cervin, the newer “boutique hotel” side of the complex. With rustic wood panelling and deep colors, each room feels like a tiny private chalet. Alpine-style rooms in the main building (completely renovated in 2013) are brighter, with leather furnishings and wool accents. In the Residence, two and three-bedroom suites also include an open fireplace and whirlpool, some with a private sauna and kitchen, perfect for a proper escape.

  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA

  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
