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).

I have been hiking from Zermatt to Sunnegga and back. Trail was easy and it took approx 2.30 hours in one direction. I decided for a roundtrip: uphill through the village Findeln and downhill close to Tufteren (Eurotrail). I was amazed by the village Findeln which looked very attractive. Unfortunately the trail towards Tufteren is closed due to the falling... More

Take the gondola to Blauherd. From here I recommend the walk to Stellisee and Stellisalp. Use the mountain footpath, instead of the wide gravel track used by mountain bikers to avoid these people who are for the most part reckless and inconsiderate scum. Stellisee and Stellisalp have the finest views of the Matterhorn.

This train ride takes you literally through the mountain - I have never done anything quite like it before! This is one way to access the skiable terrain in the winter, but in the summer it's a great activity that drops you off at a great spot to take a hike. You do need to buy tickets to take the... More

The funicular ride is great for a quick transition to the higher Alps. Great walking around the area and beyond. Good value.

It was a very sunny day when we took the rail for an unobstructed view of the Mattahorn and the surrounding glaciers. Took some fantastic pictures. There is a café where you can sit and have a bite to eat and view the mountain. You can hike paths back down to the town below. If you do not have a... More

The kids park at Sunnega was such a pleasant surprise. It was not there on my previous trip, so it is something new(er) My son really appreciated the park as well as the Marmot Trail that starts at Sunnega

We hiked from Blauherd to Sunnega, and a little bit further down, but had to return to Sunnega due to weather. Beautiful area with up and down hiking. Saw goats and sheep too. Nice reflecting lakes make for excellent pics.

The Sunnegga is an underground cog railway that comes out of Zermatt and takes you up high on the hills. From there, you can walk out of the station and see the Matterhorn with an unobstructed view. There is a cafe at the top along with toilets. A great thing to do is to ride up and hike back down... More
