Fantastic and all you imagined it to be!

As breath taking as you could ever imagine, take the Matterhorn Glasier Paradise package, go all the way up to the top, see the IceCaves and the views are incredible

We only had 3-4 hours in Zermatt. Happened to stop at a luggage storage, a chocolate store, Gornergrat train station and a restaurant etc. the clerk at every above place hold mean and unfriendly attitude. It seemed that they were really annoyed by any tourists there. Every one of them only say a word when we hand the money to... More

A visit to Switzerland is not complete without seeing the Matterhorn. People might argue that it is not as famous as Jungfrau or Titlis but the view from the top is simply breathtaking and it is quite grandeur. Also called as the Toblerone Mountain because the chocolatier that made Toblerone was so amazed by the mountain that he gave the... More

The train take you right to the top. There are a few stations on the way to the top. the last stop is almost 4,000 metres above sea level. It's quite breath taking. The air is so clean and fresh.

The Matterhorn is definitely a picture opportunity. Though usually clouds form in its' wake, on a good day it's absolutely gorgeous to take pictures of. If you are up to it, hike up to the hörnli hutte and you get to see and touch it at the point the climbers start to ascend it

The weather was cloudy and could only see a peak of the Matterhorn. Still worth taking the Train , wish we could have seen the spectacular mountain. Mother Nature did not want to cooperate.

What can you say about this magnificent mountain. It can be seen from almost everywhere in the village, and you cannot fail to take a good picture of it.

For a long time I have wanted to see this mountain in reality and when my wife began speaking about visiting Switzerland for vacation, I struck fast and hard. Within a couple of weeks I had made the necessary arrangements as I knew that waiting too long would cause prices to reach even higher than the astronomical level they already... More

we've been this august and we climbed the peak until 3700m but we had to go back due to the weather change. rain was coming and fog covered. the pyramid is imposing over the valley like a big mammoth . it's a nice view to wait until night 9-10PM , then they light up the lights installed for the 150th...
