property overview

As its name suggests, the Riffelalp Resort 2222m is accustomed to being at the top.

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.
