Zermatt-Sunnegga (via Tiefenmatten) (Nr. 115)
Climbing from the centre of the village of Zermatt up into the mountain sunshine, under one’s own steam - that’s the essence of this bracing hike. After the romantic, snow-blanketed forest, you are greeted with glorious views at Sunnegga.

The Swiss pines are heavily laden with snow; a winter breeze whispers through the bare branches of the larches. The snow crunches underfoot as the trail winds gently from Zermatt up to the heights. A longer, flat stretch reveals occasional views through the snow-covered trees of the Matterhorn and the village. In Findeln, numerous restaurants offer a wide range of gastronomic treats. Depending on time of day, the Tiefenmatten area can be cold and shady, while Sunnegga basks in sunshine. Please observe the signs, as the path may be closed due to various winter hazards.
