Description

The Sunnegga-Trail is easily reached by rail: in Zermatt just take the funicular up to Sunnegga. Once at the top, there’s a glimpse of the Matterhorn and off you go. The trail starts directly beneath Sunnegga Station and it’s great for beginners and professionals alike. Follow the trail for around six kilometres, dropping a total of 500m, you’ll find yourself back above Zermatt after a 15-minute ride through the woods.

 

You can either tack the Sunnegga-Trail on to the end of a longer tour or simply ride the trail several times: it’s highly suitable for both options.

 

ATTENTION: The entire Sunnegga-Trail will be ready in summer 2018. At the moment there are different sections of the trail open to ride. Please consider the barriers of the construction site and do not ride through the site. Thank you!

Starting point is underneath the Sunnegga station - Patrullarve - Haueten - Riedstrasse - Bahnhof

We recommend:

  • Bike in excellent working order
  • Helmet, gloves and bell and additional protective clothing
  • Clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof)
  • Drink

The best idea is to tackle this trail in several consecutive rides so as to test your sense of balance. After several rides it’s interesting to try to pedal as little as possible and use the momentum to come down into the valley.


Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).

  • Always wear gloves and a helmet.
  • Use marked bike trails and routes only, and observe all signposting. Please close gates after passing through.
  • Please be considerate to walkers and to plants and animals. As a rule, walkers have priority.
  • When planning, take into account participants’ fitness level and ability: some routes lead above 3,000 metres.
  • All riding is at one’s own risk.
