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.

the cost of getting to the top of Glacier Matterhorn is CHF100 each. Teh ried is amazing, travelling over all terrains and glaciers. It takes about 45 minutes to get up there and is very cold, take your layers! It was 20c+ at the bottom and -5c at the top. We went inside the glacier, the resturant for coffee, the... More

entrance was included in the price of lift around 100 euros. Beautiful sculptures, worth a visit , how ever could not stay longer due to really low oxygen levels

Great view, lovely place, and not too many visitors so there was absolutely no stress. We only had to change the cablecar once so there was time to enjoy the view from the cablecar too. Loved the ice carvings in the Glacier Palace as well.......I'd recommend this place anytime

It takes some time to get to the top, but the views are worth it. Going into the glacier was interesting too.

If you come to Switzerland, you have to come to Matterhorn. The views here are absolutely stunning. Soak in the scenery at the viewing platform. Remember to keep warm as the glacier palace is VERY cold!
