Viewpoint Riffelalp


The little park in front of the Riffelalp Resort is ideal for the perfect photo. This is just a few hundred metres from the Riffelalp station. The park is home to two mighty Swiss pines, which frame the Matterhorn shot in the foreground. With a little luck the red hotel tram will drive past, complementing the picture perfectly.

If your stomach starts to rumble after all that photography, a stop in one of the many restaurants is recommended. These are popular for their spacious sun terraces and unique panoramas.
