since we went in October we couldn't take the funicular all the way to Blauherd, it only went as far as Sunegga. We didn't realise that the whole journey up was inside the mountain. We walked up towards Blauherd on the 5 lakes walk and then back to Sunnega and then on down to Zermatt. We only came across 1... More

We rode up the funicular up to Sunegga and then gondola to Blauherd. Beautiful views! The hike was wonderful but we found multiple paths and poor signage and directional arrows only on intersections on some paths. We saw 3 of the 5 lakes on the Five lakes Walk as a result of taking the wrong path. There are wider paths... More

We were able to take the mountain bikes with us to the Sunnegga and to bike down to Zermatt. A bit a pitty was, that the single trail is not marked properly throughout the whole trail, but we had a guide with us who knew the route.

Sunnegga is a most wonderful place. Surrounded by many peaks and great view of Mattehorn. The best part is actually to get the lift to Sunnegga, change there and go straight to Blauherd. Than, you walk back (down) to Sunnega. This is the most picturesque walk around the 5 lakes. Crystal clear waters, perfect for a nice swim in a... More

The funicular up to Sunnegga Paradise is quite interesting. We had no idea that the entire thing was inside the mountain. Neat, but also a bit strange bc, well, no view. We went up to Blauherd by Gondola and went off to the 5 Lakes hike (5-Seenweg). It was nice, but it wasn't spectacular. This might be because the Matterhorn... More

this was one lift short of Rothorn. The higher you go the more impressive it became. Your at 7506 ft and going higher to Rothorn.

My 15 year old son and I especially enjoyed the 3-4 hour hike of Five Lakes (even though we "found" only 2-3 of the lakes). The sky was clear and the views were phenomenal! We arrived in Zermatt at 2pm, found our room quickly, ate and were at the funicular station in downtown by 3pm. We had no idea that... More

We took the Sunnegga train which runs inside of the mountain to go to the 2270m Sunnegga station. It was a nice experience although quite costly (16 CHF per person for a single ride from Zermatt village about 600m uphill).
