Hint

Intro

Note: The train from Blauherd to Rothorn does not run this summer. That’s what we call altitude! On a downhill from Rothorn to Zermatt, it’s a plunge of 1,678 metres. Which means: stay cool and enjoy.

Description

This bike tour is a winner with the best views that Zermatt has to offer for bikers: the view of the Matterhorn, green alpine meadows, mountain forests – and top trails.

Variant 1: Below Rothorn towards Fluhalp and Grindjisee and from there to Blauherd back onto the main route.

Variant 2: Below Rothorn towards Fluhalp and Grindjisee and from there via the Moosjisee to Sunnegga and Zermatt.

Variant 3: Below Rothorn towards Fluhalp and Grindjisee then towards Grünsee and to Riffelalp. From Riffelalp by the Gornergrat railway to Zermatt.

Variant 4: The Sunnegga Trail also promises ultimate cycling enjoyment from summer 2018 and is an interesting alternative.

The hardcore variant is the reverse route – from Zermatt onto the Rothorn. Convenient in every case: the Rothorn aerial railway, which travels up to 3,103 metres.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
