Ristorante Pizzeria

Italian specialities at 3,103 metres above sea level


Zermatt’s giant mountains up close

The view from Rothorn restaurant is truly unique. Here, 3,103 metres above sea level, Zermatt’s four-thousanders really are absolutely breathtaking. The Weisshorn, the Dent d’Hérens and the Matterhorn provide a stunning backdrop to the culinary experience at the Rothorn Ristorante Pizzeria.

A feast for the eyes and the taste buds

The Rothorn restaurant is always worth a visit – in summer and winter. You are sure to work up an appetite out and about in the fresh mountain air, and the Rothorn pizzeria is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat.

Soak up some sun

The sun terrace boasts fantastic views of the Zermatt mountains and is open all year round. It is the perfect place for lunch or a drink and some light snacks.

A hiking and skiing paradise

During the summer months, you can make Rothorn your base and explore the stunning Alpine countryside by mountain bike, on foot or even flying in a paraglider. The beautifully prepared slopes provide the perfect opportunity for you to head out on your skis or snowboard and explore the surrounding region.

Italy lies just beyond the Matterhorn, and Italian cuisine is just as much part of Zermatt culture as traditional Swiss specialities. The flavours of both countries are combined at the peak of the Rothorn mountain, and a look through the menu is akin to a short trip to bella Italia. Pop by and try a classic Pizza Napoletana and a delicious Valais white wine.


The Rothorn Ristorante Pizzeria is only accessible via Zermatt mountain railways. First, take the Sunnegga Express to 2,288 metres above sea level before getting on the combined chair and gondola lift to Blauherd. The cable car then takes you to Unterrothorn, and the Rothorn restaurant is right next to the station.

The journey from Zermatt takes around 25 minutes.
