Camping Attermenzen sits just to the north of Randa and to the south of Tasch, close to the ski areas in the Zermatt area. Zermatt is a traffic free zone and so it is not possible to visit the town with a motorhome or caravan. There are a few campsites in the Zermatt area and also plenty of parking areas.
As usual, I had no reservation in place, so turned up “on spec”. The site was fairly quiet, despite the wonderfully warm autumn weather. There is not a reception/booking in area. Campers are directed into the adjacent “Hole in One” restaurant to book in. Upon doing so, I was advised to choose any pitch and also asked whether electric was required. I was then loaned a Swiss hook up adaptor – the second time in two weeks I have needed one of these!
Camping Attermenzen is surrounded my mountains, many of which were snow-capped. This creates for a very pretty setting and I can only imagine how this would look in winter. The site is close to the road, so there was some traffic noise by day, but at night-time, there was nothing worthy of a mention. Trains could also be heard by day, but again, nothing at night.
Camping Attermenzen on site facilities.
- Shower/toilet block, older rather than newer, but clean and with a good supply of hot water
- Rubbish recycling
- Laundry with washer and dryer
- Electric hook up at 10 amps
- Restaurant adjacent – seemed popular with tourists and locals
- WiFi – costing two Swiss francs per day or 10 Swiss francs for the week
The walk to Tasch takes about 25 minutes. The site operates a shuttle/road transfer service at certain times of the year. From Tasch, it is worth taking the train to Zermatt.
The location of Camping Attermenzen makes this site worthy of a repeat visit, although ideally for a longer stay so as to explore the local surroundings and also the Gornergrat Railway.
At certain times of year, you may use an ACSI card for off-season camping rates.
