The view from Rotenboden station (train) is much better and it is only a half price of gondola ticket.

incredible excursion well worth the price. I think it is the best one there. Up at the top(13,000 feet) there are other trails to walk ski, or picnic with food service and ski rental.

I go back every year for the view, it is absolutely stunning and even more when the mountains are cloudless and filled with sun! As it is so expensive in summer, I usually go during the winter while I am skiing!

Wow! For those afraid of heights bear with it, I almost didn't go because of my vertigo. Here's some advice: -it's freezing up there (it felt like -15C with windchill), so pack winter clothes and change at one of the gondola stops. -take it easy, you're at 3,820 m. I suffered from a mild case of altitude sickness (yawning, fatigue,... More

It was rainy and by all means most would not have bothered - but we had one day and felt like we'd try it anyway. So glad we did. We experienced rain, sleet, and then snow as we took the cable car up and to our surprise had better views than we thought we would at the top. Pretty much... More

While the ice carvings are neat, beautiful and well-lit, The Matterhorn Glacier Paradise could use some more interactivity for her visitors.

Just wow... The climb on the cable car is very impressive and takes you all the way to 3,800m! Not for the faint of heart, or very young children (we kept the two of our youngesones with grandpa by the Scwharzsee, which is a fun walk around a mountain lake, at a much lower altitude). Just do it if you... More
