Built so close to the stars, it was tempted to catch them: Five stars adorn the "Riffelalp Resort" at 2,222 meters above sea level, the highest location for a luxury hotel of this kind in Europe.

For lovers of Design & Lifestyle

As incongruous as it might seem, one can find oasises in the mountains. The Riffelalp Resort , located just above Zermatt, at an altitude of 2,222 m.a.s.l., is such a place: an oasis of calm and luxury awaits guests here. Built at the dawn of the new millenium, the hotel offers every creature comfort one could wish for, such as various restaurants and bars, a wine bar, an indoor pool, a sauna, a solarium, and a gym. But the hotel aslo offers something that no architect or designer could make: unobstructed views onto the Matterhorn and pure, fresh air.
In winter, the hotel has ski-in facilities, due to its location halfway up the mountain. In summer, this advantage offers many thrilling mountain excursions right at the door. Or simply ride the jolly Riffelalp tram to the Gornergrat Railways and either go up to the Gornergrat or down into Zermatt. By the way, this nod to luxury has a prolonged tradition: the original Grandhotel Riffelalp opened its doors in 1884.

How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation from Lausanne or Bern to Zermatt via Brig/Visp. In Zermatt take the Gornergrat Railways to the Riffelalp. If driving: park car in Täsch and take train to car-free Zermatt.
