“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

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.

“Put this on your Bucket List”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

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.

“Simply Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

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. It must be exhillarating to climb it but I was happy just taking photos but well worth seeing from the Glacier Paradise.

“Team Asscent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

A small bunch of adventure travel professionals got together to do an accent. It was a great clear sunny day so it could not be anything else but a great day. A easy 4000 meter peak for anyone with reasonable fitness to get some stunning views
