We road the lift up to hike the 5 lakes trail. It was cloudy and overcast that morning. As we stepped off the lift, the clouds opened up and we had a spectacular view of the Matterhorn. It was breath taking. That was the highlight of my trip Europe. It is amazing that anyone could climb it. It was almost... More

On a clear day the mountain takes your breath away. The gondola and aerial car rides up the Klein Matterhorn offer great views.

The trail system is great- and the scenery spectacular. Just load up on cheese, bread and some fruit at Coop (grocery store at train station)and go. The one drawback is water- bring along a Steripen or a small pump filter and you'll never have to pay for water. Most places- water is more expensive than beer or wine.

We traveled to Zermatt via Glacier express and we did not have enough time to travel up to the mountain as we planned to go back to Zurich on the same day. The view of Matterhorn from Zermatt is just amazing. When I visited there was a city fest going on which was very interesting, you can try local delicacy... More

We took the train up trough the mountain, took 10 minutes, then emerged at approx. 2,600 metres, walked to café and viewpoint to enjoy the view. Fantastic on a sunny late June day.

The ride up to the top was astounding. It was summer, yet cool and the 360 degree view near there is well worth the trip. Fortunately we went on a clear day, and it wasn't too cold, and the view all around was something to behold.
