This is so high up, you get to see just mountains all over. It's absolutely stunning and worth the trip up (which is an experience itself!). Loved the viewing platform, and the Glacier museum is pretty interesting too.

Loved being in the snow in the middle of August. Great views from top. Make sure you're well wrapped up to enjoy it. The sculptures in the ice cave are clever but there's not a huge amount to see.

Being that I have been to the Ice Palace in Interlaken, this was not very impressive. It seemed a little safer with all of the floor mats but it took away from the beauty of the ice. They were still constructing some of the sculptures and there weren't very many to see at all. You have to pay to use... More

One of must see places in the Swiss Alps. Breath taking view and mighty mountain top. Tram ride to the top was exhilirating. Best time when there are no clouds where you can see the Peak of Mattahorn as well as the Glaciers.

This is an expensive outing but worth every cent. Takes nearly an hour to get to the top using 2 gondolas. Wow what a view. It was so windy and cold but the skies were perfectly clear. I'd suggest making sure it's clear before you go as if it's clouded in it wouldn't be a great outcome. Stop at Trockener... More

What a great surprise, never imagined how breathtaking it could be, of all option to the mountains, this is the BEST, have lunch on top and be sure to see the ice caves, which is included in your fee, the gondolas are fantastic and thrilling

Great for the viewing platform. Only go up on a good day and check the webcam first. The altitude will leave you breathless if you go for a hike on the snow. the ice palace is not really worth it.

It's pricey to get to the top, but on a clear day, it would be well worth the price of admission. Unfortunately for us, today was not a clear day. We couldn't see the Matterhorn (or even the Klein Matterhorn for that matter). I wouldn't recommend going if it's at all rainy or overcast in the valley--that translates into windy... More

Absolutely must see/feel experience. Visiting a cave in glatcher, feeling thousands of years around you! After the outside wandering - make sure to visit the top platform with a breathtaking view - make sure you visit a friendly restaurant with very nice food.

Excellent views from the top...try to go early on a clear day....the cinema experience and the ice palace is worth visiting.
