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.

You have to experience a trip by gondolas in the skies overlooking mountains to the peak of the Klein Matterhorn (the Small Meadow Peak)! Advertised as Matterhorn Glacier Paradise:) And then you get the prize of seeing one of the most dangerous peaks - Matterhorn - at an arm's length! Of course, if visibility is fine. And don't forget that... More

A way up to the top with gondola is really something like from James Bond movie. Inside: like a story tale. And the best: all way down to the village... on your skis.

It is a magnificent mountain to see up close from the glacier paradise centre. The views going up to the centre are spectacular. The glacial ice palace didn't actually have that many ice sculptures to see but the ones we did see were still impressive. The biggest downside is the altitude. If you aren't used to it, you may develop... More
