Viewpoint Riedweg

One of the finest settings for photographing the Matterhorn at its best shortly before nightfall. The terrace offers the ideal view as the Matterhorn bids good night to the village.

360° Panorama

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.

  • View of the Matterhorn
  • Tip for photo composition: include a couple of larches at the edge of the frame
  • Good viewpoint for events with fireworks: Swiss National Day (1 August) and New Year’s Eve (31 December)
