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

Sunnega is a holiday reps dream. Whatever your interest in the mountains you can indulge them here. It is the end of a training run from Zermatt to ascertain your fitness to tackle the Matterhorn. It is the start/finish for walks of all standards, from a leisurely stroll round the lake, through many routes to and from the valley of... More

The train from Zermatt to Sunnegga goes underground and is very quick (about 4 minutes). The cable car to Rothorn is currently not in operation, so we have hiked up from Sunnegga to Blauherd (about 1 hour going up) and from there took the beautiful trip to the five lakes, stopping at Fluhalp for lunch. The views are stunning throughout.... More

In just a few mintues of express train ride, travellers will be getting very close to the great mountain and could enjoy a leisure hiking around Leisee.

I stayed in a hotel across the street from the upper entrance to the funicular that takes you to Sunnegga Paradise. Mountains to take your breath away, wildflowers everywhere, and a variety of different trails down to Zermatt make this a place I want to visit again someday.

For those attempt to do the 5 lakes take note of the following, bring enough water, and poncho it incase it rains. It does help to walk with trekking pole, some... More

Amazing place, for families and couples as one. Seems like the lake is a bit human-made, but it doesn't matter, the views and reflections of the mountains are just breathtaking! Please, dont give up when you have bad weather, and come day after as well, it is totally worth it.

Quickest way to get yourself in location where you can enjoy Matterhorn view. Cold station and carriages. Buffet in restaurant - market on top.
