About
What does an Alpine paradise look like? Probably quite like Matterhorn glacier paradise. The peak with Europe’s highest mountain station soars 3'883 metres above sea level. The peak lift takes you up to the 360º viewing platform. The view from there is like paradise. You can see an incredible 38 four-thousand-metre peaks and 14 glaciers. And a must-see in Zermatt’s glacier paradise: a real glacier palace. Up above, there is a cinema lounge, fine cuisine, superb ski slopes and a little lower, on Trockener Steg or Schwarzsee, hiking and biking trails. And on top of that many unforgettable experiences the whole year round ...

Beware of the prices and conditions on the Internet, as they can be wrong and rip-offs
Apr 2021
The Matterhorn is great. The company is out to rip you off. The prices are generally high, but they play games with the pricing and conditions. Makes sure to check the prices and all the fine print online before going, since they change and the people who work there are drones with little information and cannot help if there are any problems. They are there just to take money. Even the information at the stations is not complete, only online can you check.

There are many examples with unwritten rules on half-day tickets, changing prices for the same thing from one day to the next, restictions on some tickets, etc. Too many to list here. It really is that bad.

Fantastic!

This place is just out of this world! The view is absolutely breathtaking, the restaurant good with fair prices, the cable cars the best on the planet and the slopes unmeasured! All in all the best experience you can get in the Alps!

Great scenery in an unfriendly setting
Dec 2020 • Couples
The hard product is sensational with great Matterhorn views and an impressive glacier experience.
The soft product (especially staff attitude) would require some improvement. Ticket office was unhelpful at best and staff in restaurant was rude.
Overall: The scenery offsets the steep pricing and it’s worth to go there. Don‘t let the staff negatively impact your experience.

Unaccommodating amenities and service, extremely disappointed!
Oct 2020
Our trip to Matterhorn had planned to visit Glacier Paradise; however, due to the lack of on-site facilities and unaccommodating service, which kills our mood to the spot. As a student who has been studying in Switzerland for a few years, it was such a shame to notice that such an attractive touristic site has no locker or luggage storage service, neither at the station down the mountain nor up in the site; only have lockers for skiing equipment, which is ridiculous and causes us much inconvenience. How come you have space for skiing storage, but do not have other luggage storage service or having some locker which offers at SBB stations? And how come even in Jungfraujoch could be able to locate some lockers, but not there's no such service all along the way? Even I checked on the website, it said that have lockers but did not clarify it was only for skiing equipment.

It was a disgrace for swiss hospitality and tourism having a prestigious reputation when it is a luxury travel destination, but such detail was not considered in mind. I hope that when my friends or I visit Glacier Paradise in the future, there will have lockers or/ and luggage storage service, and this comment is constructive for your further enhancement.

Matterhorn trail (Schwarzsee to Furi)
Aug 2020
We took a gondola from Zermatt to Schwarzsee, and, after stopping at the “Maria zum Schnee” chapel, followed the Matterhorn trail (Nr 29) to Stafelalp. We stopped for lunch at the Stafelalp Restaurant, which was spotless, picturesque and served great food and ice cream. Once we reached Furi, we jumped on a gondola to return to Zermatt. Excellent hike with stunning views of the Matterhorn along the way. Our favourite hike while staying in Zermatt.

A nice ride, lovely views and a stunning Glacier Palace is a must when in Zermatt. Be aware to go for this when the weather is sunny.

Amazing experience, perfectly organised
Jun 2020
This is a must when in Zermatt. Go to the very top, take pictures, stay impressed. Everything is perfectly organised, not too crowded due to current shaky Covid situation. The trip to the top includes 4 stops which can be used on hop-on hop-off basis. There is no pressure to finish the adventure within a fixed time frame. Everything is smooth and relaxing. The views are wonderful. The experience is unforgettable. Definitely recommended.

Wow - just amazing - the thing to do
Jun 2019
Jun 16: Going here was the main part of our vacation. View of the Matterhorn from the top of the Glacier Paraside. There are 3 cable car journey to the top. The first one from the town to the base and it quite picturesque with greenery and water canals. The second one is quite the thing - here from greenery you see snow all around drapping the majestic mountains. Before getting into the third one, there is an open area where can one play with snow - this is at 9600 feet.

Once on the last cable car journey, we got our first view of the Matterhorn on the right side and we could see that as we were ascending, the clouds were descending and giving a clear view of the Matterhorn. Once out of the this one, there is a viewing gallery on the left - one needs to take a lift upto it. The views are most amazing. There are apparently 38 four-thousand-metre peaks and 14 glaciers. One gets a 360 degree view with no obstructions.

There is a restaurant which is heated. There is a glacier palace next to it and from outside, one can ski to the neighbouring countries.

Amazing experience - one must do it.
