it has at the Chalet Hotel Schönegg day-to-day, the landmark of Zermatt. And yet Anna Metry says: “The Matterhorn climb is one of the most beautiful tours, but they didn’t like.” On that day, quite a few people were on the mountain. “You feel, so to speak, the crampons from the front and the back,” explains the 35-year-old Zermatterin. “I want to repeat the Tour, however, so it remains to me a beautiful reminder.”

for now, Anna considers the distinctive peaks from the Chalet Hotel Schönegg, which she runs with her brother Sebastian since 2012 in the third Generation. The four-star Superior hotel with 43 rooms and 5 suites perched on the Schönegg Plateau above the town of Zermatt, walking distance from the mountain station of the Sunnegga station.

Who lives in the middle of this mountain world, can escape her barely, you think. Long the Schönegg-hostess but showed no great interest in mountain climbing. Then the God of Anna’s ambition awake tickled and encouraged you, the famous mountain to climb. After you have smelled a rat had and because they actually wanted to do more sports , continued the young entrepreneur is equal to the ambitious goal to climb all 48 four-thousand-metre peaks of Switzerland.

Five years have passed; since then, Anna Metry 33 of this summit can be climbed – such as the Grand Combin, Weissmies, Dent Blanche, rimpfisch horn, Obergabelhorn, always in Climbing with mountain guide Thomas Zumtaugwald. “He knows my Strengths and weaknesses and see how my day is,” says Anna Metry.

Amazing, that mountain climbing has gripped Anna Metry so. The hotel boss is not completely free from giddiness.

The mountain teaching increase, a focus so intense that the fear disappear. “The joy is great, when I return to the cabin and realize that I’ve done it.” Anna’s motto: “The summit is only half the way.” The feeling of happiness at the top is huge, but the descent’t appreciate it.

“The mountain climbing shows me that you can overcome all obstacles”, stressed hair the She with the long brown. You can also use in your everyday professional life. Because many challenges are waiting for the hostess, and Responsible for the Marketing and Reception. Especially in the current time. Almost half of the hotel guests came so far, from the Asian, American, and Anglo-Saxon space. “These are the absence in the year of Corona the majority, so we need to think of something,” admits Anna Metry. But she is confident to welcome more Swiss guests in their heart and blood run Hotel.

With this year’s summer season, it’s behaving a bit like a mountain tour: “You don’t have a goal in mind, but still, where the keys are and how to overcome them.” So Anna will not rise in the near term so often on the mountains. Also for another reason: In August, the Zermatterin is a first-time mother. Fit and your goal is to implement you want to stay but not necessarily. “I need the challenge, to climb to four thousand. But I have some time.”
