The lake of the Leisee (2,232 m) is Zermatt’s beach and a popular outing for the whole family. With children’s playground, barbecue areas, picnic spots, pavillon for pic nic, play raft – and a glorious view of the Matterhorn.

For children, this is a magical place to swim and play; for parents, a wonderful spot to relax. The views of the Matterhorn are gorgeous, framed by a pristine alpine landscape. As the lake is not deep, the water temperature is suitable for a dip, despite the altitude. The lakeshores are home to a wealth of alpine flora – and in July, to tadpoles and small frogs. The little stream that flows into the lake is also perfect for children to play in.

  • Accessible in 10 minutes on foot or 3 minutes by shuttle funicular from Sunnegga summit station

  • Photo subject: reflection of the Matterhorn with swimmers
