Your hosts

The Julen host family stands for a passion for being hosts - and has done so since 1910. Today, Cindy and Paul-Marc Julen manage the fortunes of the 4-star superior romantic hotel in a very special way. The couple builds an informal relationship with the hotel guests, creating an atmosphere in which you will simply feel at home. The Julen family lives and loves traditions. Cows grazing at the foot of the Matterhorn. Sheep that take hearts by storm. Guests who return. That is Tradition Julen.

Lamb dish
Restaurant Schäferstube

The cosy Schäferstübli is the most traditional of the Julen guest establishments. Cosy ambience, lots of wood and sheepskin, yet contemporary and simply delicious. Innkeeper Paul Julen pursues his two great passions in the rustic and homely "Stübli": hosting and shepherding. His passion for exquisite Valais wines, good food and his own sheep breeding also warms the hearts of the guests and quickly turns them into regulars.

Restaurant Julen
Restaurant Julen

The Restaurant Julen offers the right dish for every taste around the clock.

Ecological footprint

As a traditional business, the Julen family has long been committed to sustainability. The hosts are constantly investing to reduce their ecological footprint.

Since 2014, energy has been produced in their own biogas plant using the dung of their own sheep together with bio-organic waste from the tourism business. Biogas is produced, which drives an engine, which in turn drives a generator and this produces CO2-neutral electricity for a calculated amount of approx. 350 CH families.

Even your journey from Täsch to Zermatt can be made by energy-efficient train. We will pick you up from Zermatt railway station in our electric cars.

Black-nosed sheep of the Julen family

Our black-nosed sheep favour biodiversity and contribute to keeping the alpine pastures lush and cultivable, and ultimately to providing more food for the wild animals. You can enjoy the meat of the sheep with a clear conscience. It is proven to be particularly rich in omega 3 fatty acids due to the alpine grazing and therefore particularly valuable.  It is a special concern of ours to use the whole animal, not just the fillets and lamb racks - we see this as our responsibility towards the animal that gives its life for us. But until that happens, we guarantee species-appropriate, extensive animal husbandry in which animal welfare takes centre stage. 

Friends of the family make yoghurt, alpine cheese and our Tradition Julen raclette cheese from the mountain milk of our cows.
