in the center of Zermatt, the Sunnegga Express
was the first Swiss funicular built entirely in
tunnel to transport the skiers up to the tracks.
In 1985 it has replaced a chair lift.
From Sunnegga, the top station, you have a splendid
panorama to the Matterhorn/Cervin (4477m), the
Zinalrothorn (4221m) and the Weisshorn (4505m).
You may continue with gondolas and an aerial cable
way to reach the Rothorn
bottom of the funicular is not exactly the bottom
station, you must walk through a 150 meters horizontal
tunnel to reach the cabin which is composed of
10 compartments for 20 passengers each.
