We loved the Matterhorn. It was very cloudy and foggy down In Zermatt but we went up in the morning and once we went over the clouds we saw the peak nicely. Try to go in the morning rather than in the afternoon as it...More

Wonderful experience. Not as crowded as the Jungfrauch or as expensive. Could actually walk out on the glacier. Amazing view from the top.

You can't visit Zermatt without going up the Matterhorn. The trip probably takes at least 30 minutes but the scenery on the way up is gorgeous. We had a good weather day (it was July) so we had good views from up top. It was...More

We were so fortunate to stay in Zermatt and have an amazing view of the Matterhorn, then, to travel up to Glacier Paradise (see other review). Fun things to do up there to, if you’re game. It’s a big day out, but worth the cost...More

The Matterhorn is beautiful, both from the ground near Zermatt and up in the observation towers. Sunrise and sunset are best viewing, too see the spectacular colors reflected.
