There is a funiculaire and cable cars to reacht Rothorn. From the top, there is not only a very beautiful sight on the Matterhorn, but also on more than 10 tops above 4000m. In summertime, there ar walks in the region of the Rothorn, not difficult (if one can walk in the mountains)

Our favorite run in Zermatt is number 14 down to Kumme. Even in April the surface was powder. There was hardly anyone else there. In one day we did this trail seven times. We ate at the Rothorn restaurant twice. It has fabulous views. Prices of course are off the charts.

It offers one the best views of the Valais Alps and being constructed across the high mountain range and altitude, it is one of the most impressive cable car systems I have ever experienced.

There is a great view of the Matterhorn from Rothorn paradise. (You can use your ski pass to get a pic through Skiline right after exiting the cable car). For skiing - Black 13 & Red 12 are both nice runs down to Kumme.

In 20 minutes access to great blue/red/black slopes with smaller crowds than Matterhorn glacier paradise. Quick and efficient lifts. Easy return to town center by slopes or train.

Taking the renovated funicular gets you up very quickly from Zermatt to the Rothorn. We excited and enjoy the panoramic view on the top. A good place to start a walk to Vroni's for lunch or dinner.

You may reach Sunegga and begin a hike up to this spot. Do Not Miss- The yummy strudel that the Rothorn restora serves. The restora is a great place to click... More

We caught the funicular railway, which is reached via a long tunnel. We got off at the first stop Sunnega and walked down to the Lake, where a beautiful reflection of the Matterhorn is found. We then walked back up the path, and caught the gondola to the next stop, where there is a restaurant and beautiful views.
