Rothorn visit is a fantastic experience for those visiting the Zermatt region....the views of Matterhorn,the surrounding mountains and glaciers are simply superb! On a clear day, a visit to Sunnegga and Rothorn is definitely worth it! We had purchased the Panorama Pass for the region which turned out to be a great deal as it covered the rides to Klein...

Was at the restaurant enjoying the view and we had a very nice weather when my girlfriend and I were up there. It was sunny yet cool.

As a first time skier, I found the slopes at Rothorn good but a bit challenging. However, the views from the top are spectacular and make it worthwhile!

Definitely worth coming to ski here. We have been here at the end of January 2017 and we have almost been skiing alone...

The skiing was fantastic but what we found frustrating was there were no maps on the top of the lifts to figure out where you are going what was also annoying was every time we wanted to find where we are going everyone we asked who worked there was saying download the app. Sure that worked but our phone were...

The restaurant has had a recent complete overhaul and is now a beautiful authentic Italian with attention to detail and fresh ingredients. Our party of 6 was well looked after by a friendly waiter who had a handful of comical Geordie phrases. It is perfectly possible( if a little expensive) to reach this epic spot without skis using 3 lifts... More

from below it seemed to be a rocky, rough mountain without snow, but the somehow "hidden" skitrack down was wide enough, prepared well, and the track simply spectacular, even passing on the rim of an old glacier moraine!

Rothorn has some excellent ski runs and is served by a very large cable car that runs all day. It can get rather busy due to its popularity.

Start your journey at zermatt where you take a funicular through a mountain (tunnelled), you then can take small cable cars or a chair lift to Blauherd where you take a larger cable car to Rothorn. You get good views of The Matterhorn and "friends" at any of these stops. There is a cafe in Sunnegga, Blauherd and Rothorn be... More
