Jun 15-17: The moment one is in Zermatt, it is impossible to miss Matterhorn. Matterhorn is overwhelming in this car free town of Zermatt. You can see it from the rail station, from the narrow lanes of the town and from Glacier Paradise, from Sunnega, just about anywhere.

Few of my favourite places to see this mountain is the Matterhorn Glacier Paraside, Sunnega and at sunrise. I was up before 5.30 am and was waiting in one of the lanes near my hotel waiting for the sun to rise and turn the Matterhorn into a golden mountain. This view is an amazing view as the mountain tip starts to turn golden as the sun starts to shine. It then flows down as if gold is running down the slopes. Its a view that can keep you mesmerized for quite some time.

While the views from the Matterhorn Glacier Paraside are stunning, do check it out at sun rise. You will not forget that view in your lifetime.

4 years in a row i have been visiting Zermatt and this beautiful mountain. It was love at first sight and you all should visit The Matterhorn. My favourite!

I recommend you to stay at Riffelalp Resort 2,222m, you will have the Matterhorn right in front of you, and Matterhorn will be the first thing you will see in the morning.

We did the trip up to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise as part of a Peak2Peak ticket. The weather was a little cloudy but we took a chance to go up knowing that we will probably never return here. It was cold but did not rain which made the trip up worth it.

Stayed in Zermatt and took the train up. The cost of the train is 60 CHF per person for a 25 minute journey, so expensive and typical of Switzerland!
Other than the exorbitant train price, the view was very good.
Worth it, if you are desperate to see it.

Nice village Zermatt, but too crowded. Overpriced as well as you need to take train there, cars are not permitted. It is long walk to the mountain. The mountain itself not very impressive. There are lots of other more beautiful places in Swiss Alps.

My wife and I visited Zermatt in mid may and decided to go up to see the Matterhorn on the Gornergrat railway. Having our Swiss rail pass we got 50% off on the price for this ride. Wow ! Was it worth it ! Although there is a lot of screeching going around turns the ride had some fantastic views ! At the top the view was absolutely Magnificent ! The temperature was 21 Celsius which was quite warm and a surprise considering the snow on the ground. If you ever make it to Zermatt do yourself a favor and go right to the TOP ! You will not be sorry.

We are not skiers but paid the £70 for the pass to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise.
What a view, I will never forget this. The view point at the top was windy and very cold, possibly-20 but 1 station down we had lunch and sunbathed.
Don't miss. Remember the sunglasses.

Overall experience was good.
Few tips I would like share:
1. When you take train ticket to go up then take until Gornergrat, I would be little cheaper ( about 75 CHF)

2. Be ready to about 30-40 CHF for lunch, if you want to have lunch near Riffelsee station.

3. Better start early in the morning.

Our first time being in the Swiss alps but it was breathtaking. We went snowboarding for 3 days and riding down the slopes with views of this beautiful mountain was just amazing.

Every time you look at it, you just want to take another photo. Another video.

Sometimes it got cloudy and foggy so it really depends on the visibility. If it's a clear day, it's absolutely stunning.

I don’t remember reviewing anything quite like this before and find it amazing that anybody can give it less than five stars. They must really take some impressing!

So much natural beauty and its history is fascinating. Won’t be for the mountains around it it is changing shape which seems incredible we were on the glacier express heading up to Zermatt so were viewing it for quite a long time - snow covered and magnificent, it is one of the most beautiful sites you can imagine.

We also Learned about mans determination to climb it and there is a graveyard in town to those who failed this very difficult task. There’s some wonderful stories and photos around the town which bring it to life.
