Photographing the Matterhorn at nightfall is not always easy: the cable cars have stopped running, and in winter, especially, it is simply too cold. Not so at the Riedweg. Here, photography enthusiasts wait on the terrace, wrapped in warm blankets, for the perfect moment to take a shot.

Tip for photo composition: include a couple of larches at the edge of the frame
