MARRIAGE IN THE RIFFELHAUS
SAYING YES IN FRONT OF THE MATTERHORN
The bride and groom are standing before the most majestic of mountains, the Matterhorn. The wedding guests in the Riffelhaus are enjoying a wonderful party. It is your dream wedding! We will take care of everything – all you need to do is say "I do". Just like the happy couple's love, memories of this wonderful day will last an eternity: experience unforgettable moments at the Riffelhaus. We have put together some very special offers for your big day.
The Riffelberg chapel "Bruder Klaus" stands on a hill in the shadow of the Matterhorn, at a height of 2,590 metres. From here, you will have an unforgettable panoramic view of the Matterhorn above and the valley below.
The chapel was consecrated in August 1961 by Arthur Elchinger, bishop of Strasbourg, and is owned by the burghers of Zermatt. It is dedicated to Nicholas of Flüe, the patron saint of Switzerland. Architect Ferdinand Pfammatter developed the plans. The outline of the building is almost the same as that of the Weisshorn, the pyramid-like four-thousander on the other side of the valley.
