An amazing view of Italy-France and swiss alps. its 100 franks per person to go up but the view is amazing. The museum is amazing. Do not forget to bring worm clothes and sunglasses! its very cold up there, and make sure you come on a clear day!

Definitely worth the money and trip. We arrived at zermatt around 12pm and there's wasn't much option for us as we were too late for skiing and there was a waiting line for paragliding. So glacier paradise it was:) The staff at the tourist counter was kind enough to go through all the possible options and gave us many suggestions.... More

Cable car and gondala take you to the peaks in around 40 mins. At the top you have a viewing platform where you can see the skiers and snowboarders and fantastic views of the glacier up close. Visit the ice palace for a chance to see beautiful ice sculptures.

Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is a fantastic place to visit, beautiful scenery, great photos, take your time and enjoy the experience. Well worth the money,10am/11am seems to be a good time to go? Most tours tend to go early morning.

Great few hours at the highest point in the alps. Whilst their was negligible visibility the day we went up the trip up was great with beautiful scenery. At the top there is a small cinema showing short films on the Swiss alps, a restaurant, small souvenir shop, viewing platform and ice palace.

The fabulous ease of the rope way / gondola trip is to be seen to be believed. Buying the ticket and then you are away. The huge number of gondolas limits waiting time to the minimum. The sheer climb is exciting and once you reach the Swiss border the Italians take over in larger carriages and the waiting time increases... More

I love the close views of glacier. It is simply magnificent and unusual. In the Glacier Palace, it's definitely another experience in touching, playing with glacier. I enjoy it a lot, taking quite a few nice photos.

Going up here is a must do if your in Zermatt. The Glacier Paradise is exquisite, and the ride up the lifts is an experience in itself. The view from the top was stunning. It is a bit expensive but the price is definitely worth the views and experience.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Glacier Paradise, to see people ski-ing in August was unreal and when we went down into the glacier it was brilliant. The ice sculptures were unbelieveable and we had fun taking some photos. It was expensive enough though, after paying to go to the glacier there was an extra charge to visit the... More

We went to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise as a day trip and had an amazing time. From the top, you are very close to the Matterhorn and the Breithorn, and you can see the Swiss Alps and far into the French and Italian Alps as well. The glacier cave is fun to visit as well. Photo tips: Get the famous... More
