From here, you have the privilege of looking down on Zermatt, Switzerland's southernmost health resort, situated at a "mere" 1620 m at the foot of the world famous Matterhorn and surrounded by 38 of the 76 European mountains that are more than 4000 m high.
Riffelalp Resort 2222 m is 600 m higher and surrounded by lovely larch forests. The cog railway can take you there in 20 minutes.
And once at the top, summer season guests can ride on the red Riffelalp Tram – Europe's highest streetcar.
The Riffelalp Resort 2222 m lies even higher than Zermatt and surrounded by beautiful Arolla Pine woods. The cog railway covers the 600-meter climb in 20 minutes and the Riffelalp Ressort is a world of its own. Here, the Matterhorn and other impressive peaks lie at your feet and, on a clear day, you feel as though the world-renowned mountains are close enough to touch from your bedroom window! The skiing area lies directly in front of the hotel - ski-in and ski-out, so to speak – and evenings, curling adds to the enjoyment. In the summer 400 kilometers of hiking paths invite guests to enjoy a stroll and tennis courts are available for the more energetic.
