The expanded spa facilities are the perfect complement, both in winter and summer, to all outdoor activities around the Riffelhaus. As you soak in the warm waters of our outdoor whirlpool, you might just catch your mind wandering to the sunny climes of Africa. That is no strange idea, but rather one directly inspired by the geology of the Matterhorn.DISCOVER OUR SPA
