Nature Hub

Well connected – with nature

Hotel Riffelhaus was the point of departure for many of the first mountain climbers for good reason. The last outpost of civilisation, in a manner of speaking, the hotel is located precisely where it is desirable for a hotel to be located. Easily reached by train, directly on the slopes and, at the same time, right in the heart of nature, with an incredible view of the mountains and the valley below.


The perfect spa experience

The location and the view alone provide for deep relaxation. The new spa area in the Riffelhaus has the feeling of a private spa. Both in the winter and in the summer, the outdoor whirlpool, sauna, steam bath and relaxation area are the perfect complement to the activities available at the Riffelhaus.


Sniff the mountain air

The Matterhorn from every angle. The Zermatt Alpine landscape has magic powers, and we have exciting ideas – for an eventful day or a wonderful evening. Do you want even more mountain? Stay at the Riffelhaus, facing the Matterhorn.


Mountain climber stories

Toward the end of the 19th century, exploration of the mountains was a hot topic, and mountain climbing became the trendiest sport of that time. Many rope teams started their climbs from Hotel Riffelhaus. Among these were the conquerors of the Dufourspitze in 1855. The images of mountain guides in the hotel are reminiscent of all the great mountain climbers of that time and of today – and are a reminder of the history of the hotel.
