Experiencing nature

The Hotel Restaurant Schwarzsee is the perfect lodging for anyone who wants to be close to the mountains and directly across from the Matterhorn. Here are a few ideas for your stay in the middle of the mountains.


The lake of the Schwarzsee (2,552 m) lies right at the foot of the Matterhorn. The Schwarzsee gondola station offers the finest view of the famous Hörnligrat ridge on the Matterhorn, the Hörnli hut and the village of Zermatt way below.

How about a hike to the Hörnlihütte? Anyone who is in Zermatt should take this path under their feet at least once. This is where the first climbers set off on 14 July 1865 to conquer the Matterhorn. Of the seven alpinists, only three returned to the village of Zermatt. Among them was the Briton Edward Whymper.
