Owner description: The best view of the Matterhorn The Rothorn is easily reached from Sunnegga in just 15 minutes. From here, you can see the Matterhorn from its most photogenic side. An added attraction is that you see all 38 four-thousandmetre peaks that surround Zermatt. We recommend: It is worth to get up early and enjoy the magnificent view at sunrise! A special item of interest up here is the themed hiking trail “Peak Collection” around the restaurant Rothorn. This special outdoor exhibition of 18 sculptures will connect you on an artistic level with the Alpine world of Zermatt and its many tales. Zermatt’s most beautiful mountain lake The Stellisee lake at 2,537 metres (8,323 ft) is the most-photographed lake in Zermatt. For sure, you have already marvelled yourself at a photo of the Stellisee, capturing the fascinating reflection of the Matterhorn. From Blauherd, you can reach the idyllic Stellisee in about 20 minutes. The famous flower trail also starts at Blauherd. This unique hike offers an unparalleled diversity of flowering plants. Your excursion can be ideally combined with a break at Stellisee lake or the sunrise ride.

We have visited Rothorn in the past and found the views of the Matterhorn and surrounding peaks marvellous.
Unfortunately on our recent visit,June 18th - June 28th the cable car was not open for business.
It may be worthwhile considering this when planning a visit to this area.
All the high lifts may not be running early in the season

love the place, good food but super slow. Be sure to not be in a hurry because its going to be a long lunch. But the food is great and worth the wait and the view is also awesome

Great for skiing, so many different pistes and tele cabins, chairlifts! Wonderful snow conditions, sunny on south side, less people on north side.

A wonderful area reached via the Sunnega train, Blauherd chair/gondola and then the cable car up to Rothorn. Well worth the 3 lift start as the skiing is fabulous when you get to the top. You can find yourself as the only skier on some runs and it's worth stopping to appreciate the silence of the mountains before someone else skis past.

Sunnenga lift has been totally refurbished in 2013 so the long tunnel walk is now on cushioned floor and much improved. The new, bigger, tunnel shuttle seems quicker and with less queues. Other lifts as before.
Runs are generally wide, properly graded and with well prepared pistes.
Flualp is the best lunch stop!
