It was a area of extreme beauty

Its located in the area near the Matterhorn, its look simply majestic especially with no cloud cover. It a tall mountain of which many climbers have scaled her majestic pieaks

Full report under Breithorn hotel. Definitely recommended in Champoluc for skiers but 10 minute walk to the nearest lift on a main road and issues with locker keys if not a couple.

It was my first 4K climb and it was fantastic, the views, walking with crampons and being above 4000 m.

This was the easiest snow climb we ever did. Yet, you need to know basic mountaineering skills, and be comfortable walking in crampons (depending on snow conditions you may not need them). You better be well acclimatized when you climb Breithorn, it is quite high. Easy access from Kline Matterhorn (gondola station). Round trip to the summit is about 2-3... More

The Breithorn is one of the few mountains higher than 4000m suitable for non-mountaineers. It is easy "climb" that means no climbing at all: you can walk up to the top. Your mountain guide provides all the equipment like grampons, harness, etc. Klein Matterhorn is the starting point of the hillwalk. First you cross a glacier the you walk uphill.... More

We ate our first meal here upon arrival of fresh pasta. It was a small portion but stunningly good. We decided to go back and have a full meal starting with cocktails. We had the Gin Martini (in/out) and the Bloody Mary and both were superb; strong, clean and neverending! Without going into detail of each course (soup, grilled veg,... More

Take the cable car up to Klein Matterhorn -3800 mtrs approx and you can walk(taking care to avoid crevasses) in an arc to the left and you are at the foot of a lovely snow climb to the nicest gentle summit overlooking the Visp valley with Zermatt at its head. Have climbed up here several times.Go only in the recognised... More

While not as enigmatic and imposing as the Matterhorn, Breithorn is still visually stunning and worth seeing. We were able to see this mountain even when the MAtterhorn was covered in clouds.

From the top of the Klein Matterhorn, you can hike/climb to the easiest 4,000m accessible peak in the Swiss Alps. Zermatt Tourist/Ski Information offers Guides & Equipment - only go properly equipped and guided due to crevass risk.
