  • / Zermatt’s popular swimming lake, the Leisee: a stone’s throw from the Sunnegga summit station.

Sunnegga (2,288 m) is heaven for families. In summer, the Leisee lake offers a refreshing dip. In winter, skiers of all ages enjoy their first sensations of sliding on snow at Wolli’s park for beginners.

The funicular ride from the valley station in Zermatt to Sunnegga takes just 4.5 minutes. The railway, fully renovated in 2013, leads up a rock tunnel through the inside of the mountain to this sunny, scenic terrace with incomparable views of the Matterhorn.

Marmots’ playground
In summer, the marmot-watching station is just a few minutes’ walk from Sunnegga, and promises an unforgettable experience for the whole family. A theme trail reveals fascinating facts about these charming mammals, which live in burrows high in the Alps.

Zermatt’s beach
In summer, families adore coming up to the crystal-clear waters of the Leisee. This is the top spot for an outdoor swim in Zermatt, complete with children’s playground and barbecue areas. Children love playing on the big raft and splashing around in the water – while adults relax and enjoy the glorious view of the Matterhorn.

Superb skiing and snowboarding
In winter, skiers and snowboarders continue on the gondolas, chairlifts and finally the cable car up to the Rothorn. This is the gateway for adventures on the sunny pistes of the whole Rothorn area. However, many return happily to the terrace of the self-service restaurant to enjoy the sunshine and the superb views of the Matterhorn.
