Ceremony on the Riffelberg in the “Bruder Klaus” chapel
The Riffelberg chapel “Bruder Klaus” stands on a hill in the shadow of the Matterhorn, at a height of 2,590 metres. From here, you will have an unforgettable panoramic view of the Matterhorn above and the valley below.
The chapel was consecrated in August 1961 by Arthur Elchinger, bishop of Strasbourg, and is owned by the burghers of Zermatt. It is dedicated to Nicholas of Flüe, the patron saint of Switzerland. Architect Ferdinand Pfammatter developed the plans. The outline of the building is almost the same as that of the Weisshorn, the pyramid-like four-thousander on the other side of the valley.
Additional information for organising your wedding
The mountain chapel seats 50 guests and has space for the bride and groom and 6 witnesses. The chapel may only be used for free for wedding ceremonies by wedding parties who have booked a drinks reception and meal in the Riffelhaus.
