The water of the Schwarzsee lake: crystal-clear and ethereally beautiful, with the "Maria zum Schnee" chapel is perfectly reflected on its surface. This marvellous lake at the foot of the Matterhorn can be reached in only 12 minutes from the Matterhorn Express valley station. Many interesting facts about the bizarre work of the glacier can be learned on interactive theme paths recounting stories about the Matterhorn as well as on the Matterhorn glacier trail.
The Matterhorn Express is now extended. The non-stop gondola lift from Zermatt to the Trockener Steg is continued through Furgg to the Schwarzsee, and is therefore more comfortable.
