  • Great day in the field overlooking Zermatt. the weather was in full sun. We had to choose between all the cable cars. We have chosen the Rothorn. What panorama! 360 ° views of the Matterhorn view. And exceptional in a place a little time away from the exit of the cable car to a real mediation in front of Monte Rosa. The total foot! The price of the cable cars are expensive, but worth the effort.
