Many say that views of the Matterhorn are best viewed from this spot as they reveal its perfect form... which could well be true. But the mountains to the east of Zermatt are all pretty much perfect vantage points!

The mountain trip commences with the underground funicular to Sunnegga. Close by you discover marmot observation points – and mini funicular rail takes you down to the idyllic Leisee lake.

The journey continues with gondola rail to Blauherd. A walk along the marmots theme trail leads back to Sunnegga – and the Seenweg lake path to the valley of the Findel Glacier.

Finally, a large cable car takes visitors to the Unterrothorns summit – from where stunning views comprise many of the 38 four-thousand-meter-high-peaks surrounding Valais.
