If you find yourself in Zermatt on a clear morning, you must do this if affordable for you. You feel as if you are on top of the world. We did it in late July and the fact that you are going up with sightseers, hikers, skiers, bikers, ice climbers and snowboarders is amazing in and of itself. You get... More

Worth doing if you are already planning a visit up the mountain, but I probably wouldn't make a special trip. To be inside a glacier is really something and the ice sculptures are near.

Well worth a look - these are beautiful and detailed, plenty of different scenes and a thoroughly enjoyable part of the trip up the Matterhorn. Recommended. Delightful.

Our group use this to climb the Breithorn. A very efficient lift system with spectacular views, but it was expensive (CHF100).

If it's a clear day then this is an opportunity not to miss and worth the price. The ride to the top is an experience in itself but once you arrive the views are amazing. We went in July and there were lots of skiers and climbers but we were able to walk around with a light jacket on. It... More

With only a day in Zermatt this was on our must do list and we kept our fingers crossed for good weather. We woke to clear skies, although the forecast suggested it would cloud over later in the day, so we took an early ski lift. Without a Swiss travel pass we had to pay full price (CHF100 each), so...

The ride was lots of fun. The view was wonderful.The ice museum at the top was a little disappointing.

Up to over 3800m to the top of the Kleinmatterhorn. Awesome feeling to be inside the glacier - just inside the ice. Great view to the Matterhorn. A must if you are in Zermatt.

Just the Gondolas on the Cable car initially provide magnificent views before graduating to the larger cable car to the top. We did this as part of a full day trip and it was worth every moment. The views from the top over Switzerland, France and Italy are unbelievably breathtaking and the Matterhorn is earth's creation of sheer awe and... More
