The ride to the top takes more than one cable car. The last one is the largest (150 people) and by far the most spectacular ride of all. Incredible ascend, docking station is wrapped to the top of the mountain at 3899mtr (take your time, take a deep breath or two!!) and a tunnel through the top of the mountain... More

Getting to the top takes quite a while, but it's definitely possible. This is the way you can go over to the Italian side but you must ski or snowboard to do this. If this is your plan, it is essential you do it early as the lifts close and you can get stuck on the Italian side. I must... More

Took the opportunity of the ski pass that I bought even though I do not ski. Manage to go up to Klein even though the wind was strong. Wasn't disappointed by the view.

perched atop an impossibly high mountain, the ascent by cable car itself takes your breath away, the steep rise over crevasses and glaciers up the rocky mountain side is an unforgettable experience in itself. the glacier walk, natural cave, theatre screening films on MGP, etc. and a lift taking you through the mountain up to the top for a stunning...

zermatt is not cheap so if you're going just for skiing/boarding, try other places. it's only worth it if the matterhorn is visible. unfortunately it was snowing and cloudy when I visited. the panoramic view at the top closes early (i think last elevator was around 1:30pm).

It wasn't the clearest of days when I went up there, but it was still worth it. The tram brings you up to a dizzying 12,739ft, so listen to your body and be careful with the altitude...especially if you go straight up from Zermatt village. You will end up a bit dizzy and feel sluggish, no matter what shape you're... More
