SUnnegga / RotHORN ZERMATT

Some people say that the Matterhorn is best viewed from the Rothorn, since it showcases its pyramid shape perfectly. And who are we to argue? The mountains to the east of Zermatt are great viewpoints.

The journey into the mountains begins with the underground funicular railway to Sunnegga (2,288 metres above sea level). This was the first funicular in Switzerland to travel entirely inside a tunnel. At Sunnegga you can watch marmots at play, while the nearby Leisee lake is the perfect spot for a swim. The journey then continues by eight-person gondola to Blauherd (2,571 metres above sea level). From here, the themed Marmot Trail leads back to Sunnegga and the five-lake trail into the valley of the Findel Glacier. Finally, a big cable car takes visitors to the summit of the Unterrothorn (3,103 metres above sea level). The views of most of the 38 four-thousand-metre peaks around Zermatt are quite simply breathtaking.
