Riffelalp Resort 2222m 5*S

Zermatt, Switzerland

Hotel's website
Far away from the ordinary at a height of 2222 m, here an oasis of tranquility, unspoilt nature and warm hospitality awaits guests. The 65 double rooms and 5 beautiful suites nearly all have a balcony with breathtaking views of the Matterhorn. A water-world with Europe’s highest outdoor pool (35°C) is found at the "St.-Trop-Alp", as well as diverse saunas, steam baths and choice of body treatments and massages.

Leisure and outdoor activities include bowling, billiards, sports shop (in winter only) and many cosy niches. The skiing and hiking area lies directly in front of the hotel and skis and mountain bikes are obtainable at the hotel. No culinary wishes are left unfulfilled at the Restaurant Alexander and relaxing moments and local specialties are also enjoyed in the charming Walliser Keller (in winter only). The Restaurant Al Bosco with sunny garden terrace offer tasty foods with a touch of Bella Italia and with Dine Around in Zermatt, an additional 6 restaurants await spoiling your palates.

The journey from Zermatt is an adventure itself, and the Riffelalp can only be reached from Zermatt with the Gornergrat Bahn (cog railway). Trains travel every 24 minutes from 8.00 to 16.24, after which there are 4 additional trips.

The Riffelalp Resort 2,222m lies 2,222 m above sea level on the southern edge of a plateau, at the heart of the Gornergrat skiing/hiking district. Bordering a stone pine forest, the location offers a unique Alpine panorama (directly facing the Matterhorn), while benefiting from the favourable micro-climatic conditions of the plateau.

The leisurely 20-minute ride on the cogwheel train takes you through a breathtaking scenery to the Riffelalp plateau at 2,222 metres above sea level. During summer our private tram (Europe’s highest) takes you through the wonderfully fragrant stone pine forest from Riffelalp station to the Resort. In winter we provide the luggage transfer by snowmobile. The train ride between Zermatt and Riffelalp as well as the transfer to the Resort on your arrival and departure days are included in the room rate.
