High up on the small Matterhorn is the glacier paradise. Make sure you dress up warmly as it is always just below freezing in there. Kids and grown ups will like the ice sculptures and most definitely the ice slide you can use with a carpet. It's an amazing place inside the ice'y mountains.

We felt like we were on top of the world from the summit and it was exhilerating. The Ice Palace sculptures were disappointing and those at the Jungfrau were better.

Whether was too bad-but we did not want to miss this chance as next day we were scheduled to travel to Zurich. Most of the people might have not experienced it- it was a light snow storm (The cable car was not closed-so hopefully it was below the limit)-Riding a cable car in a snow storm and sometimes suddenly discovering...

Wear lots of clothes because it is cold and windy up there (-4 and 51 km per hour winds). There are several stops... More

Worthwhile going up there is the weather is clear. Incredible views and a terrific lunch in the restaurant.
