While not as enigmatic and imposing as the Matterhorn, Breithorn is still visually stunning and worth seeing. We were able to see this mountain even when the MAtterhorn was covered in clouds.
From the top of the Klein Matterhorn, you can hike/climb to the easiest 4,000m accessible peak in the Swiss Alps. Zermatt Tourist/Ski Information offers Guides & Equipment - only go properly equipped and guided due to crevass risk.
Didn't climb this mountain but did take cablecar to Klein Matterhorn and the view of the Breithorn was fantastic. Climbers started their assent from the Glacier Paradise and it was absolutely messmirising to watch them climb. They soon looked like little 'ants' making their way across the bright white of the peak. You could also see where avalanches had occured.... More
Great skiing with fantastic views. The slopes are extremely well looked after. The pistes are always in tip top condition.

Our 24 yr old daughter climbed this mountain with no experience but had a wonderful Zermatt guide. She rented the equipment and did something that she will never forget. You have to be in good physical shape to do this; you are climbing a glacier mountaintop.
Often overlooked, but still mighty and awe-inspiring. You can get close to the top by taking the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise lifts upto Klien Matterhorn. Snow covered all year round, great views and skiing even in summer.
