Owner description: From the peak of the Rothorn at 3103 metres there is the most spectacular view across the whole Zermatt region as far as the Matterhorn. On this walk around the Rothorn restaurant you can draw in the pure mountain air and admire the original "Peak Collection". This special outdoor exhibition of 18 sculptures will connect you on an artistic level with the Alpine world of Zermatt and its many tales

“Great view of the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Loved it all. The rides in the funicular, gondola and cable cars were all fun. The views were spectacular. We just beat the clouds from covering our view of all the mountains. Depends on the weather and we lucked out!

“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Traveled by train, then gondola and finally cable car to get here. Well worth it for the views.
There is a really charming little chapel at the top and also a restaurant if you feel like a coffee or something to eat. We just walked around and enjoyed the view. Amazing!

“Rothorn Paradise is a great experience while in Zermatt.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is a great experience to do while in Zermatt. While you can see the Matterhorn from the lower elevations in Zermatt, the trip to Rothorn offers you the best views and for photographers, the best photos. You will have to change cable cars twice before getting to the top. At the first stop is a nice cafe offering awesome views of the Matterhorn. This was one of the best things we did while in Switzerland. Kids will enjoy it also.
This is a little expensive, but not by Swiss standards. Would recommend this to anyone traveling to Zermatt.

“Best Lift view for Matterhorn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The view from the 50persons cabin lift of the Matterhorn is one of the best. Neverthless the cabins were overcrowded; safety and security should in any case taken under consideration.

“Great morning excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Catch the 3 legs of this journey to the top of Rothorn for stunning views & perhaps get to see the parasailors taking off. Walk the middle segment down to see the classic lake view reflection of the Matterhorn
