Travel to the top for views on a clear day up to Jungfrau, out to Mt Blanc and down into Italy. You are very close to the Matterhorn and it dominates the western views. But dont just look there, the view all round is awesome. The restaurant at the top is a bit expensive, but very warm (great after you've... More

Today, one does not have to be an skilled climber to be able to see the highest mountains. One of these options offers the Matterhorn Express from Zermatt to the Little Matterhorn. A giant information board at the entrance to the cable car station shows the operational status of the various mountain transportation and facilities, and weather conditions. A little... More

We fortunately had a clear day for a day trip from Montreux, (thank you SwissPass and Trip Advisor forum) and the cable cars (3) to 12,700 feet to see the world in including the famous Matterhorn (a good deal higher) bring you to a truly spectacular view point where you ride up with skiers in May but you get to...

Enjoy absolutely stunning views of the spectacular mountain range. The cable car ride is fun, even if you are packed in a bit like sardines! Be prepared for cold conditions on top - it was minus 11 during our visit and a really bitter wind. After some fun in the snow, a hot chocolate soon warmed us up.

When you decide to go to the top to view the Matterhorn.If it is cloudy at the bottom and you decide not to go on it stop.Go it is a beautiful ride up the mountain and most likely clear up there. When you get up there you can walk around or get a bit to eat or to the bathroom... More

We were in Zermatt in October and took the three cable cars that it takes to reach the Glacier Palace at Klein Matterhorn. Looking up from the town of Zermatt where you catch the first cable car, it was absolutely beautiful. The weather in Zermatt was 22c, sunny and calm but when we got to the top at 3883 meters... More

Zermatt is beautiful. Nice shops, great chocolate shops ! Go inside the church. Cable car ride up the mountain was a little crowded but not really an issue. Enjoy the view. Stunning. We had great views of the Matterhorn. Got great pics.

I guess we were lucky, but our 2 days in Zermatt included absolutely outstanding views of this mountain. Of course you might not get cloudless days like we did. There are many places in Zermatt where you can see the mountain and it looks so much closer than it is. Also check out the cemetaries in Zermatt for those unfortunately... More
