so, my wifel and i decided to take a trip on the glacier express and learned two things i would believe are relevant to travelers to this area. first let me say, i love switzerland. no place like it. that being said, the weather does not always act in favor of seeing the matterhorn. and so, we never saw the top. peaks that are that high, seem to have clouds hanging around very often. the town was very quaint and we enjoyed our strolls, the prices of food and things were similar to prices in amsterdam,,,, very over priced. and the glacier express, well, nice trip, but the train from zermatt the chur, the next day was the highlight of our train rides, definitely reccomend this 2 hour journey on a regional train, as the windows open and you can get much bettter views and pics.

Although the view wasn't as clear as I would have liked it to be, the view is breath-taking. The transport up to the Matterhorn is very easy and useful. The shops and restaurants at the top near the Matterhorn are so sufficient and a pleasant atmosphere.

It's a great trip up the mountain with amazing views. We could not access all areas as there had been a huge snow dump.

The Matterhorn is everything that you have read about it. It's just amazing and photos do not do it justice. It's just a place that you have to see for yourself.
The viewing platform is great and if you go all the way to the top by cable car, you can stand on the viewing platform and even have a snowball fight. Also, the video display at the top is very good as well. I think this is the best mountain to see in Switzerland by far!

Loved the cable-car ride all the way up to the Matterhorn. The general public usually go up to the small Matterhorn, from where they could get great views of the main and large Matterhorn peak, good weather permitting. The views of Zermatt when the cable car goes up are amazing. Watch out for animals that you can see on the mountains, like the Mermot
