Wonderful views

We visited on a sunny day. It is how to describe how beautiful the views are from this place. I came with my Mom and my child and we all enjoy it as much.

This is an absolute must do . The views are spectacular and get better and better the higher up you get. Try to avoid the skiers by going late morning though , it was v busy . It was minus 16 at the very top and so wrap up warm !

Takes quite a time to get here, but well worth the trip. You get a view of the high alps peaks from up within them - something you can't see from lower down. If you are in the area and enjoy views from on high, don't miss this

Views from Sunegga and other areas were fantastic. There was no view from the top of Matterhorn Glacier Paradise due to high winds whipping the snow into white out conditions. The restaurant was very slow for lunch. $100 for 3 people. The glacier ice palace was kind of interesting. Go up for the experience and check out the ice palace... More

After skiing down to gondola furious I then joined up on the gondolas to take you up to the Matterhorn Glacier Experience, Which is a monumental building incl Restaurant, Cinema Experience and the best of all a viewing gallery out on top. Which allows you a 360degree views across Suisse & Italian Alps. The ski down to Cervinia was amazing... More

I think it's worthy to go up for ski there, many people did so. But I think the view is not as good as I saw at the station at Trockener Steg. And there is not much special things to see in the ice cave. Personally think it's not worthy to pay entrance fee to visit.

The highest cable car station in Europe (3,883 m), with its new restaurant, sets fresh standards in sustainable development.

One of the main attraction in Zermatt. With the help of cog-rail and ropeway we can go straight to the top. Ice museum at the top is a big attraction.
