The highest cable car station in Europe (3,883 m), with its new restaurant, sets fresh standards in sustainable development. The views of the highest mountains in Italy, France and Switzerland are breathtaking. The ski area on the Theodul Glacier is...more
Stayed in Zermatt for a week and got the Peak Pass to allow us to use all teh lifts in the area. The trip to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is a must - the views from the summit are amazing with so many 4000m summits...More
We headed to the glacier palace whilst at Zermatt and highly recommend it, worth the price and time for beautiful views ! Cable car up was the most crazy ride as you go so high over such vast gaps but don’t let that put you...More
Take an early train (Sunnegga) before the crowd. Walk around the lake to enjoy a beautiful reflection of the Matterhorn.
If you do not have enough time, just do this without the need of doing the whole tiring walk of all the 5 lakes.
I went here the end of September and had the whole glacier paradise practically to myself. There were 3 other people inside. It was awesome. Went down the ice slide 3 times. I've been inside a glacier in Iceland, but this was easier to get...More

I would recommend when getting off at Trockener...More
The trip up was amazing views and so beautiful. Glacier palace is ok if you really like ice sculpture. But probably not worth the trip. We got a combo ticket and had 1/2 price passes so who knows how much we paid, so maybe it...More

Just read on TripAdvisor it takes 47 minutes. It takes three gondola rides from Zermatt. We stayed awhile at the second level to adjust to the altitude. Bathrooms on top are not free. Have fun. It is beautiful up there.
