The Sunnegga mountain at 2,288 m is considered a family paradise in Zermatt. In summer, the Leisee lake is a great place to swim. In winter, young and old can make their first attempts at skiing in the Wolli beginners’ park.
Sunnegga Paradise – Family destination
Sunnegga is an alpine pasture area located 2 kilometers east above Zermatt. Alp Sunnegga is located on a terrace at an altitude of 2,280 m and is advertised by Zermatt Tourism as “Sunnegga Paradise”. In summer, Sunnegga Berg is the starting point for many hikes and in winter an important hub for the slopes.
Summer, sunshine, Sunnegga
In the warm season, Sunnegga mountain is the place where Zermatt’s sunny summit shows its most diverse side. Hikers can go on a journey of discovery and explore marmots, alpine roses and other exciting highlights of the Swiss mountains. Those who prefer more action can hire a kickbike and helmet on Sunnegga and ride down into the valley on an all-terrain scooter, heading straight for the impressive Matterhorn. Sounds adventurous? It certainly is!
The Sunnegga-Rothorn valley station is just under a 10-minute walk from Zermatt train station. The funicular ride to Sunnegga takes just 4.5 minutes. It takes you through the rock tunnel inside the mountain up to the panoramic sun terrace. The view of the Matterhorn is incomparable.
