A little bit unlucky as the weather was not so clear but we could see the most and enjoy the snow there. Spend 2 h here and that was ok

If you want to see Matterhorn in the nice position, please take the train up to this mountain. You can get great picture of Matterhorn like me. And there are so many peoples going up to ski and toboggan.

This place is gorgeous, but pick your day. If it's cloudy and/or the Matterhorn is obstructed or hazy, best to wait for a clearer day.
