If you travel to Zermatt, you should not miss going to the Little Matterhorn. The view is spectacular (some 30 peaks which are higher than 4'000 meters are visible from the viewing platform). The restaurant is neither bad, nor great.

When being around it is almost mandatory to have a view from the Klein Matterhorn. It can easily be reached through the aerial tramway!

Klein Matterhorn is a wonderful location to have a panoramic view over the Alps from Matterhorn to Mont Blanc. Unique panorama point of view at an altitude of over 3800 m!

This is the highest point you can travel to in Europe without climbing. You ascend 3883 metre in a combination of cable car and gondala. The views over the French and Italian Alps from the top are stupendous.

I believe Klein Matterhorn is what is Matterhorn Glacier Paradise for tourists. I'm not really sure there's a difference. We went early on a Sunday morning and there were hoards of skiers of all ages going up to the gondola with us. You can ski down on the glacier once you reach the top. Tickets can be bought nearby and... More

The Journey and view from the top is awesome, surrounded by pyramidical mountains, it feels so close you can just touch them. We went there with gornergrat bahn but while returning back we treked a stop, my Son 4 years old did his best while trekking down.

The town of Zermatt near the Matterhorn is a nice mountain town with lots of character. We took a cogwheel train up the mountain next to the Matterhorn and ate at the top overlooking the Matterhorn. It's a beautiful view! My niece and I had a small bottle of wine. At that altitude the wine effects take over pretty quickly!... More

This is the mountain on which the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is located. The mountain looks like a miniature version of the Matterhorn, and thus the name "Little Matterhorn." The trip up by cable car is very impressive with beautiful views all around, inc of the Matterhorn. It's very cold at the top, even in summer, so be prepared. When you... More

Klein Matterhorn is the ski area closest to the Matterhorn. You ski on a glacier, but most of the terrain is easy. The view of the Matterhorn is not so great as you directly face it, and don't get the classic photo view. The area can have the best snow as it is high, klein Matterhorn is VERY high at... More
