From the Rothorn, the iconic Matterhorn presents itself from its most spectacular side. Besides the spacious cable car, adventurous and well-maintained hiking trails lead you up to the summit on 3,103 m.a.s.l. On the top, you enjoy a breathtaking view over the surrounding peaks, with a lot of them reaching above 4,000 metres. The "Peak collection" exhibition helps you find the most stunning summits.

I would not recommend the adventure with the very young or old. The journey to the top was not as enjoyable as the Gonergrat, as there were hoards... More

When sunny shines, that place is wonderful. The slopes are in extremely good shape. If there is cloudy, it's quite hard to see the slopes.

Slopes in excellent condition, steep and long runs and a wide choice of services, some very nice restaurants. Great access with Sunegga train. The last section to Rothorn sometimes crowded.

Take the cable car up to the top and feel the height. There is another cable car which comes up to the top which has great sloops but check the conditions first, because it does not run if it is too windy. Could get very cold up there;-)-

Go when you are there. Hike down to one of several wonderful super restaurant in the area. We were there in the winter and saw some deers in the hills so keep your eyes open and enjoy.
