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.

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

Fortunate to be in Zermatt on Tuesday morning to be able to do go to the Rothorn to watch the sun rise and light up the Matterhorn. The breakfast following the spectacular sunrise was varied and plentiful.
