Kids loved tubing on the fresh snow in August. Lots of skiers and climbers enjoying the sunny slopes.

We were blessed with great weather & lift to the viewing platform was working so plenty of good shots. -6 on top Brrrrr. The ride is of course spectacular. But the last cable car was very busy, so be prepared for perhaps limited viewing there. The ice cave was great for those of thus that don't see this sort of... More

We were lucky with perfect weather and hence perfect views, plus not too crowded. Stunning place to visit. Plan to walk some of the way up or down to make a decent day of it. Take a picnic if you have a normal person's budget. The glacier cave is better than the one on the Jungfraujoch but still missable

The ride up is amazing. The views are truly one of a kind. Also, you can choose to stop on the way, hike to your heart's content and go further. At the top the view is breathtaking, the glacier is a lifetime experience - including the visit inside the glacier!!!! Playing in the snow was just so much fun in... More

We were looking forward to our trip to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise and it proved to amaze us way above our expectation. The ride up in the cable car was purely one of delight for us as we could see the views of all surrounding areas. We dropped off at the different stops on the way and saw the lake... More

When we go up, the lift to the viewing platform is out of order thus the viewing platform is closed. We are very disappointed as we are not informed about this when we buy the ticket. Although we can see the Matterhorn, but if we just want to see the Matterhorn there are many other cheaper choices, we buy the... More

Don't go on a foggy day! I guess this attraction would be a 5+ in a sunny day, who knows. We took the Matterhorn express all the way up and had a return ticket to Schwarsee (79CHF) per person and walked back to zermatt from schwarsee. Included in the ticket you get free access to the ice museum, a few... More

We followed the recommendation of the concierge of our hotel - and we did not regret it. The Glacier Palace at the top of the Small Matterhorn was an unexpected surprise. Next time we may plan to use a guide to walk one of the mountain peaks around. Beware the altidude - this is nearly 4000m high and there was... More
