Experience alpine mountains and meet the friendly marmots on Murmelweg Wanderung, a marble path ideal for a family hike. The narrow, downhill track offers plenty of panoramic views, including views of the Matterhorn.

The trail passes by Lake Leisee, so don't forget your bathing suit and a picnic basket. Use our Zermatt trip planner to add Murmelweg Wanderung and other attractions to your Zermatt vacation plans.
