The Täschhorn is the uncrowned queen of the Mischabel group. Even if the Dom is 55 m higher, the Täschhorn catches the eye with its appealing triangular form. The demanding south-east ridge and Teufelsgrat ridge are legendary.
The Matterhorn, the king of mountains, is the most-photographed mountain in the world. It is myth and emblem for Alpinists and photographers alike, as well as Switzerland’s most famous landmark and symbol.
The Stellisee (2,537 m) is among the most famous of Zermatt’s lakes. The sight of the Matterhorn reflected on its mirror-like surface is breathtakingly beautiful, and is made for magnificent photographs.
The hotel on the Riffelberg was the first to be built at such an altitude, as well as only the second of Zermatt’s hotels to open. This achievement bears witness to the pioneering spirit of Zermatt’s entrepreneurs.
Built in 1862, the Mont Cervin Palace is one of Zermatt’s most historic buildings. The 5-star hotel with the greatest number of rooms in Zermatt was known as the Mont Cervin hotel until 2004. Today, the name of Mont Cervin Palace is known worldwide.
