Hotel Riffelalp Resort

In 2000, the renovation was completed of the old Riffelalp Hotel, situated on a plateau high above Zermatt so enjoying a “ski in/ski out” location second to none. The original hotel opened in 1884 but was destroyed by fire in 1961. In 1988 the hotel reopened with just 40 beds to close again 10 years later for the current renovations to take place. The transformation is magnificent and offers a unique experience of five-star luxury in a superb setting. It is now a member of Leading Hotels of the World.

The brilliant ski in ski out Riffelalp hotel offers a variety of on-site entertainment facilities including Restaurants, a bowling alley and a spa.

Situated on a plateau at 2222m, the hotel is accessible on skis from the Gornergrat area or by train which runs from 0710 to 2150 so you can partake of some of the apres-ski or enjoy an early dinner in Zermatt before returning. As one might expect, the views of the Matterhorn are wonderful.

The Riffelalp Resort is a short walk from the Riffelalp train station where regular trains throughout the day take you straight to the Zermatt centre where you can enjoy various aprés-ski activities and experience the variety of bars and restaurants that Zermatt has to offer.

Resort details


Zermatt ski resort is commonly regarded as one of the best ski towns in the world, offering fabulous skiing, stupendous scenery and an extensive variety of high-quality restaurants and hotels. There has been a settlement here since the Middle Ages, with the first tourists flocking to the area in 1838. The town retains its traditional charm to this day with it being car-free, which creates a wonderfully relaxed and peaceful atmosphere and allows visitors to enjoy the clear mountain air. Free electric buses connect all the main lift stations on the valley floor and there are plenty of milk float-style electric taxis for hire. Wander off the main Bahnhofstrasse and you will quickly be walking beside ancient wooden “mazot” huts filled with farm animals and hay.

The magnificent Matterhorn is sufficient reason in itself to visit Zermatt ski resort. This distinctive pyramidal peak has become Switzerland's trademark around the globe. Wherever you are skiing the slopes or in the village, you cannot resist regular glances to see how its appearance is changing according to the light and the cloud conditions. At an altitude of 3,883m, the Matterhorn Ski Paradise is Switzerland's highest ski area; guaranteeing fabulous skiing conditions all season long which truly live up to the magic of the town.
