Just back from 2 weeks in Switzerland this June. This trip used several modes of transport to get us to the top of Klein Matterhorn. There was a raging blizzard on the side o the Matterhorn visible to us. It was a white-out! Just bundle up in layers and gloves to be warm. The Matterhorn creates it's own weather. When... More

The big cable cars were not running from Zermatt so we took the small ones which went a longer way. The ride is fantastic when it is clear The final cable car ride is amazing going into the rock just below a pinnacle. Very cold (well it is very high!!) But views are amazing as is going inside the glacier... More

The best part of visiting this place is that it is not too much crowded unlike Jungfrau or Titlis. We get some peace of mind and space to click photos without the mad crowd around us. Don't expect too many activities on this peak. Simply enjoy the beauty of the Matterhorn from very close distance.

Took the glacier paradise cable car up to Klein Matterhorn in June 2015. The views are superb. It even snowed a little up at the top of Klein Matterhorn. Very cold....please bring warm clothing.

Unfortunately it was deserted when we arrived, around 5 pm. I guess tourists leave early. Very cute little chapel to visit up there, stayed open when everything else was closed.

Klein Matterhorn cable car offers another panorama of scenery totally different form the Gornergratbahn. Although I am a Gornergrat fan, Klein Matterhorn is not to be missed. Word of caution it is a totally time consuming trip and therefore you need to invest time in it. A whole day I would say.

The cable car trip from Zermatt up the Klein Matterhorn is an essential all day trip to set aside for your trip to Switzerland. Go the full hog and do the Glacier express tour, which will take you into the glacier. There are wonderful carved statues deep inside this glacier, and despite many people saying it is hard to walk... More

Took the gondolas then the tram up to Klein Matterhorn. The ride alone was great. But once there, the views were stunning. And they had free tubing! I got to go tubing in the alps!

Not to be missed - little point in going to Zermatt if you do not visit the Klein Matterhorn or other mountain location.

Getting op with the gondels, in total you go up more than 1.800 m to over 3.800 m above sea level. I think the longest gondel in Europe or the world.The views are spectacular. Not just the Matterhorn but all the mountains. You feel like in a winter wonderland. Even people are skiing in the mornings. A must do when... More
