Das Hotel Ofenhorn in Binn an einem Herbstabend

Hotel Ofenhorn Binn

The Ofenhorn Hotel is located around 1400 meters above sea level in the Valais mountain village of Binn. The Swiss Heritage Society calls the Hotel Ofenhorn one of the “most beautiful hotels in Switzerland”. This title is based on the special architecture of the building, which was built in 1883, as well as on the local dishes for which the hotel’s own kitchen is famous.

Stellisee and Matterhorn from the 5 lakes hike Zermatt

5 lakes hike Zermatt

The 5 lakes hike in Zermatt is a moderately difficult hike. The hike is 9.8 km long and leads 241 vertical meters uphill and about 530 vertical meters downhill. It took us – breaks included – about 4 hours. It starts at the Blauherd mountain station above Zermatt. The panoramic hike offers not only 5 different mountain lakes to marvel at but also a great view of the Matterhorn. It’s not for advanced hikers only: Families and pleasure hikers will also enjoy this route. Those who are a bit more ambitious can extend the 5 lakes hike a bit and start from Sunegga.
