I read reviews prior to the hike and was left agreeing that the lakes and trail are a little underwhelming. Though there is no escape from the ski resort nature of the entire valley, this trail really highlights that fact and there are few moments...More

Highly recommend this hiking trail together with an all called outdoor active. It helped me to get me through the 5-seenweg because the signs were clear enough. One good thing about this app is that it tracks your location so you know where you are...More

Watch the signs and ask for directions and you'll be rewarded with some of the best mountain lake reflections you can imagine.

From Blauherd, a lovely walk takes you to the first lake. The views back to Matterhorn are superb and the reflection the the lake is magnificent. Then the route takes you on a sweep downhill to the next lake and then onwards. We did find...More

This is one of the most scenic walks you can probably take in this beautiful high alp environment. What puzzled us is the overload of signs and we were wrongfooted more than once and not the only ones. You can take this walk both clockwise...More

Started this walk but deviated after Stellissee and walked to Sunnegga instead of carrying on to the other lakes. My reasons were as follows: - It was a very cloudy day and visibility was poor. The entire Matterhorn was covered in cloud. - From reviews...More

We took the funicular to Sunnega, and then the Gondola from Sunnega to Blauherd, where the 5-lakes hike begins. Starting with Stellisee lake (then heading toward Grindjisee) makes the hike mostly downhill. It is possible to shorten the hike by not going to all the...More

We made the mistake of doing this trail backwards and what should have been 2hrs or so, took over 3. After getting off the funicular at Blauherd, take the ski lift up and start the 5 Seen weg there. The signs keep you on track...More

This hike was very beautiful, but there were tons of people. Some of the loop route was not on trails but on larger dirt roads. Admittedly we had just spent 4 days in the backcountry hiking to huts, so the 5-Seenweg hike was a bit...More

The walk is clearly signed, and easy to do for the moderate hiker. No need to have poles and shoes for this one, but can't hurt. We did it in running shoes. The beauty is the lakes and the mountains. If the Matterhorn doesn't peek,...More

There are no tourist cars allowed in Zermatt, there are only electric cars for the businesses in the village. You'll take a train into downtown Zermatt. You'll need to take ski lifts to the 5 Lakes trail head. Within walking... More
