We went to glacier paradise because we wanted to ski up there. We didn't visit the glacier exhibit but it is very worth a trip to see the views from the panoramic photo spot. The views skiing in Zermatt are stupendous anyway but this was outstanding. Awesome experience for the non skier too! Worth the long trip up there!

One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. 360 view includes the highest and most beautiful Alps peaks. You can even get a picture of Matterhorn and Mont Blanc right next to each other! Expensive, but... after 3 times still want to come back.

We traveled up to the top of the Klein Matterhorn to get the 360 degree views of Italy, the south face of the Matterhorn and to see the ice palace. The ice palace was ok - basically carved ice sculptures inside an ice cave. The real reason to come here are for the views. We we're here on a cloudless... More

If you have not been to Zermatt you have been to Switzerland. Such a lovely place. The whole city looks like a place in an animated movies. Add to this beauty is the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Kids have loads of fun there. Snow tubing & play in the snow in the Summer is great. Views are just exceptional. Very good... More

This ski area is the most incredible in the world. The size, scale, lift network, snow quality, and scenery is second to none! The on-slope restaurants and variety are amazing.

You bought the ski lift ticket, you are ready to ski all day long. You are already there! So take some time and view both the glacier caves and the observation deck. The views from the observation deck are amazing. It feels like you are at the roof of the world. The glacier caves are wonderful. We were the only... More
