Stellisee
About
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

Pretty lake with reflections of the Matterhorn on the 5 Lakes trail, between Blauherd and Fluhalp. It's a relatively easy hike, very worthwhile.

People that work here are not helpful. First all the ticket places were closed (although ppl were sitting in there) and second the automated machines were broken. A lady sold us a ticket and said we could get on the next train and then we could not go.

If you are lucky with the weather (no clouds, only a very weak breeze) you can make the photograph of your life. But even without it is an easy beautifull walk.

The view from the Stellisee is very good. I like to sit there and have a picnic and admire the view but there are only two chairs. More chairs are needed.

The lake is a quick 10mins walk from the Blauherd station. The view was good, but because there was wind, we were unable to see a clear reflection of the Matterhorn on the lake.

Because of the close proximity to the cable car station, many people chose to visit the lake and make a return to the cable car station, without further walking along the 5 lakes path.

This is one of the most scenic lakes I have ever seen. The path to get there has some rocky spots so wear good shoes for hiking. Take your water and camera/phone. The mountain reflections show up better in photos than by just looking.

But a short walk from the Blauherd gondola for lovely views of the Matterhorn reflected in Stellisee. A popular place for Wedding photographs for couples from Asia as we found out.

Arguably the best view on Matterhorn, much better than Rifflesee. The lake can be reached by 20-30 min walk from Blauherd gondola station. We managed with a two year old kid, but no way fro stroller. In order to catch some reflection, it is best to go in the morning with the first cable car. There are also less tourists in the morning, it might get crowdy around the afternoon hours and you don't want the whole spectrum of jacket colors to appear in your photos. Sometimes they even cannot be removed in post-processing.
There is a nice viewing spot a short walk beside the lake in Fluhalp direction.
