My wife and I traveled all the way up to the Klein Matterhorn to the Glacier Paradise. The ice tunnel is really neat and on a clear day, you can see 38 peaks over 4,000 meters tall. 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.

Took the gondola up here as part of our fall visit to Zermatt. We were lucky enough to be here on a clear day and the view was stunning. It was interesting to see everyone coming up here to ski and trek- wish we had more time to do the same, but this is a great way to experience the... More

Being up at Klein Matterhorn at 3883m is of course amazing - thin air and all - but to be honest the actual ice works and glacier paradise complex didn't excite me. The outside platform views were truly spectacular though, as was the ride up.

Unfortunately, because the weather was so bad so we didn't enjoy our excursion as much as anticipated. The rides were scary due to strong wind and we couldn't see much because of low visibility and snowing. There were just us and another family. A couple of sections were closed. In hindsight, we should have changed out plan and gone another... More

It was beautiful to see so much natural beauty and people will enjoying it in different ways. Some were skiing and others were taking pictures and others were just taking it all in and hiking on various trails. Something for everyone to enjoy.

The views brought tears to my eyes as I observed God's creation! The elevation is over 12,000 ft so you might feel a bit weird. The ice caves carved into the glacier were fun to visit.
