If you go to Glacier palace, then you will go through this cble car. With Swiss pass, this cost me around 50CHF per person, include ticket of Glacier palace. WORTH FOR THE MONEY GIVEN. The views are great, just keep your camera ready. Wear the thermocoat, sweater before boarding the cable car.

We visited the Glacier Paradise at the top of the Matterhorn (sort of near the peak) via the cable car. Like what most trip advisor reviewers have written, the peak hour time starting from 9am plus onwards are swarmed with throngs of skiers.

This was literally the highlight of our Italy/Switzerland trip. We went up in the cable care to the highest peak above Fury next to the Matterhorn. It was a beautiful sunny day, so the sight was magnificent. We had a Swisspass, so our tickets were 50% off - I believe it only cost us about $40 each to do to... More

The view is just amazing, Mont Blanc is right there to the touch and all of the rest of the Italian French Swiss Alps. But be careful it is at almost 12000 feet in elevation and the air gets very thin and with age I seem to have more problem breathing.

The scenery and cable car trip up i was beyond expectations. THe ice place is noy to be missed. The staff were helpful. However charging 1 CHF for hot water refill for tea was a little much.

The views are fabulous. Great spot for taking photos with dramatic backgrounds. Lots of friendly folks around to take photos for you. Best to use video setting to get everything into the picture.
