Tips

  • Wiebke

    When the lake is ice-free and there is no wind, the mirror-like surface of the lake with the picturesque pyramid of the Matterhorn in it is one of the most popular photo opportunities in Switzerland.The picture on the Riffelsee differs from the Matterhorn reflections in the Stelli and Grindjisee lakes because of the extraordinary perspective: while the other two lakes show the world-famous north face of the Matterhorn, the Riffelsee reflects the east face.The Riffelsee is not directly visible from the Gornergrat train station Rotenboden, but can be easily reached in just under 10 minutes on foot, downhill.For the perfect photo it should be as calm as possible. Be careful on the bank, climbing rocks also causes waves. There is no wind and therefore flat water surface, especially early in the morning and late in the evening.
