Category: 5 star superior hotel

 

On a small plateau above Zermatt, the Riffelalp Resort 2222m has the distinction of being Europe’s highest luxury hotel. Built in 1884 as a summer-only enclave, the property enjoys such a lofty location that it's one of the few hotels in the world that is unreachable by car. Throughout the 19th century, Europe’s high society would check into the Riffelalp for six weeks at a time to relax and rejuvenate. Today, ski and nature lovers take advantage of the mild microclimate and unique location in the heart of the Gornergrat skiing and hiking area. The region has a nine-hole golf course. Dining options includes The Alexandre, Walliserkeller, Ristorante al Bosco, Mark Twain Lounge and Dine Around.

 

LOCATION

At 2,222 meters above sea level and only reacheable by train, Riffelalp is situated on a tranquil alpine plateau and boasts eye-level views of the famed Matterhorn.

 

RECREATION

Nestled in the heart of the Gornergrat skiing and hiking district, Riffelalp offers ski in/ski out access to the area's 360 km of slopes.

The view from our balcony in room # 409, was terrific. It was centrally located to everything on and around the port area. Wonderful service and everything was very clean. The breakfast was below average, although not bad. If back in Zante Town we would stay there again.

It is close to everything but if you go in the lower season the pool won't be ready even though the temperature was quiet high already.
