Overview
More
The Stellisee (2,537 m) is among the most famous of Zermatt’s lakes. The sight of the Matterhorn reflected on its mirror-like surface is breathtakingly beautiful, and is made for magnificent photographs. Pictures of the Stellisee can be seen all over the world: hardly surprising, because the reflection of the Matterhorn on its still surface has been photographed millions of times. The panoramic views of towering peaks, well over 4,000 m high, are among the most dramatic in the Zermatt region. The lake is a 20-minute walk from the Blauherd summit station. At sunrise and sunset, especially, this is a particularly romantic spot. Cotton grass grows along the lakeshore, providing splashes of white among the green-brown hues of the meadows. • Fly fishing (bookable offer) • Photo subject: reflection of the Matterhorn

This small lake is a short walk (about 20 minutes) from the Blauherd lift station. Get there early to avoid the crowds- to truly enjoy the area, walk further to Flualp or even down to Riffelalp.

About a 20 minute walk down and 25 minute walk back up. We managed to get our umbrella stroller down there, a bit harder to push back uphill with the loose gravel. A BOB stroller or stroller with rubber tired would have been better. The...More

On a clear day you can get wonderful views and reflections in the water. Appears to be very popular even with the 25mins each walk to the cable car station

A beautiful lake in the foreground and the Matterhorn in the background. This view is well worth the effort to locate it.
