“Beautiful Scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

A lovely car free village reached by cable car or gondola. The views over the glacier are beautiful and it is a great place to start the day skiing with mostly very quiet runs. Pistes are well groomed and in the main there are very few queues with lots of places to eat. The small hotel and restaurant at the top of Riedefurka has a new restaurant extension and is a great place to stop.

“Riederalp”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Lacks ambiance of Bettmeralp and too much Art Fuhrer atmposphere. Nice for a day visit from Bettmeralp, but not to stay.

“Beautiful area with simply stunning views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We were here the day before yesterday, making the most of the "Herbstaktion" ticket on all cableways and railways in the Aletsch area. Wonderful weather and magnificent views

“out of the world”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

I've enjoyed a long weekend in Riederalp, a village you can reach only via cable car from Moerel. The village is situated at 1925 mt. in the area of Aletsch glacier. This is the place where you can really "pull the plug" and regenerate yourself. In summer time there is a wide choice of trails. When you have had too much walking you can always take the electric bus to Bettmeralp. What a fantastic place !

“Summer vacations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were at Riederalp for four weeks. We were with our children and friends.
Riederalp is a great place to go if you like hiking, although four weeks is a bit to long.
Comparing to other Swiss villages we had vacations, the problem with Riederalp is it's on one side of the mountain and not very accessible. Therefore the hiking possibilities are quit limited.
In spite of the above, this is a great place. With no traffic due to fact it's a restricted area for vehicles (excluding small electric taxis) it is a children (or should I say parents) paradise.
At night, there is absolutely no sound which makes the stay a relaxing dream.
