The view from the Rothorn is sensational. As the locals will confirm, this is the Matterhorn at its most photogenic. All the surrounding mountains strike stunning poses as well, with one four-thousander after another combining to form a very special panorama. In addition to affording spectacular views, the Rothorn is also the perfect place for a number of activities, including hiking and mountain biking in the summer and snowshoe hiking and skiing in the winter.

Activities on the Rothorn

In summer, the Rothorn becomes a paradise for hiking, mountain biking and exploring the Alpine landscape. Summer on the Rothorn holds the promise of unforgettable discoveries, but in the winter the peak is an outstanding ski area and serves as the starting point for excellent runs in the Matterhorn Ski Paradise.
