This pleasant walk leads through the forests of Zermatt with their larches and Swiss stones pines: an adventure for all the senses.
This path leads mainly through typical mountain forest. At times, it reveals views of the Matterhorn and the green rise of the Schafberg, where the gondolas of the Matterhorn Express glide up to the heights. With the warmth of the sunshine, the trees – gnarled Swiss stone pine trees and arrow-straight larches – release a soothing scent. Whenever a breeze blows, the sound of rustling pine and larch needles fills the air.
Anyone seeking relaxation or an opportunity for quiet contemplation will enjoy the pure air and mountain light, the scent of resin and of the forest floor, and the whispering of the trees.
You find the highest tramway in Europe at Riffelalp. The railway leads through Alpine pine and larch tree forests – just once consciously inhale the scent of forests.
