We took the lift up to Blauherd and hiked to Fluhalp. Easy hike and beautiful views of the Matterhorn and Lake Stellisee. Cute mountain hut and restaurant at Fluhalp. Would love to spend a night there next time!

It takes you quite a bit of time from Zermatt station to Rothorn but it is worth it. You will find black, red and blue slopes for all kind skier/snowboarder level and some decent spots for free-riding. Personally, I prefer the Rothorn area way more...More

Great Italian restaurant on top of a mountain. Very friendly and professional waiters, excellent pizza and pasta, to stay longer or just for a quick bite. Kids friendly.

We went up to the top by funicular and cables cars, the views are good, but not as spectacular as the Gornergrat, that said, we then came down to Blauherd and did the five lakes walk down to Sunnegga. Well worth doing, although the walk...More

If you love mountains like I do, you will love Rothorn as well. As a matter of fact, you would love the Alps for sure.

Like the other major attractions in Zermatt- Gonegrat and Glacier Paradise, Rothorn boasts it's fair share of spectacular vistas and beautiful scenery of the Swiss Alps. In my opinion, the highlight was Stellisee near the Blauherd stop. We were lucky to encounter calm weather and...More
