Zermatt. Schwarzsee

Schwarzsee (literally "Black Lake") is a lake at Zermatt. It is located below the Matterhorn at an elevation of 2,552 m.
Its surface area is 0.5 ha. A chapel dedicated to Mary of the Snows borders the lake (Kapelle "Maria zum Schnee").
The lake lends its name to the mountain ridge (2,583 m) above
The water of the Schwarzsee lake: crystal-clear and ethereally beautiful, with the "Maria zum Schnee" chapel is perfectly reflected on its surface. This marvellous lake at the foot of the Matterhorn can be reached in only 12 minutes from the Matterhorn Express valley station. Many interesting facts about the bizarre work of the glacier can be learned on interactive theme paths recounting stories about the Matterhorn as well as on the Matterhorn glacier trail.
