For summer fans and hiking enthusiasts
Surrounded by an impressive natural backdrop of 29 peaks towering over you at 4000 metres, this is the perfect spot for hiking and relaxing. During the gourmet excursion, you will enjoy cocktails and tantalising Valais appetisers, a three-course gourmet menu and a delectable dessert with a speciality coffee.
Hike or take the train
The entire gourmet excursion can be experienced in comfort with the Gornergrat Railway. However, if anyone wants to enjoy the fresh summer breezes and feel at one with the mighty Alpine sur-roundings, we recommend the short hiking route from Rotenboden via Riffelsee to Riffelberg (duration approx. 1 hour).
Enjoy yourself the Gornergrat way
From Zermatt, you will first take the Gornergrat Railway to the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat, where you will be served cocktails with a selection of Valais appetisers. One station or hike later and you will arrive at Zermatt’s oldest mountain hotel – Hotel Riffelhaus – where an enticing three-course gourmet menu awaits you. The rustic ‘Alphitta’ mountain restaurant on the Riffelalp is the last tasty stop and offers dessert and a speciality coffee. Finally, you will return to Zermatt on the Gornergrat Railway.
