I have skied in lots of places that have a reputation for beauty - the back bowls at Vail, the treelines in Steamboat, and bumps at Mary Jane. This is a quantum jump over all of those. Why? Because you can see so many 4,000 m peaks at once, because you are so high above the ground, and because the... More

The view on a clear day is a memory that will not fade. You must bring your camera!!! You can walk and take in the spectacular scenery. There is food available for purchase.

from the village of Zermatt, ther is a cable car to Trockener Steg, and a second cable car to Klein Matterhorn. Be sure to buy a ticket to Klein Matterhorn, included gletscherpalast. The trip to the top of Klein Matterhorn gives very beautifull sights (dont confuse with the Matterhorn, to that mountain there is no cable car). On the way... More

Conquer your fears and go for it, you won't be disappointed. The views are stunning, the experience is amazing. Some people were even walking down through the snow but with a guide. Enjoyed the cinema films although a bit much if you can't cope with the concept of the mountaineering. A different film showed the helicopter ride.

you have to be in a physical condition to travel up to 4000m this is actually just under. amazing trip up with the very modern transport system that operates all year, except maybe for a short maintenance break.

The view is best when it is clear, but it is also spectacular when you go above the cloud line, almost like a secret world. It was windy with fast moving clouds so the Breithorn was in and out of cloud, beautiful. Unfortunately did not see the whole Matterhorn out of cloud, but it was still worth the trip. Good... More

Definitely worth going up. The views from the top are spectacular, looking over the Alps and, the Matterhorn dominates the skyline. A must do on a clear day.

My wife and I travelled up to Klein Matterhorn several times during your 8 day stay in Zermatt. The weather at the top varied considerably - thick cloud, -8 degrees, clear sky, fresh overnight snow. The ski gondolas travelled through low cloud on occasions to reach the top that one day was clear of cloud but the next the top... More

Do not miss this trip on three cable cars. The spectacular view will be a lifetime memory. Go on a day where the view is clear. your hotel will have a webcam view of weather conditions at the top.

I have always dreamed of seeing the Matterhorn, and this experience lets you see the mountain up close and from an angle you are not familiar with. We were very lucky that the clouds opened up that morning so that we had a beautiful view of the mountain. It is so serene and peaceful at the top of the observation... More
