About Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, Zermatt

If you thought you’ve seen a view to die for, you might want to hold your horses till you visit the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Ride as high up to the beanstalk as you can with Europe’s highest altitude cable car to enjoy spectacular views of 14 glaciers and 30 mountain peaks, some of which are in France and Italy, not to mention the Matterhorn, of course.

The Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is a rather happening place as climbers leave from here to scale Breithorn and since skiing happens here 365 days a year, there’re always skiers looking to train or just ski for leisure. Once you’re done exploring, step indoors and explore the glacier palace full of ice sculptures, a crevasse to walk through and an ice slide, which is ideally meant for kids, but adults are known to slide down bum first here too!

Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, Zermatt Reviews

  • Glacier is really cool, nice I've sculptures. Its a long old trek to the top on a number of lifts so be prepared to eat into your skiing time... It's 8chf to get in & isn't covered on your list pass. Kids entry is free. There's a small ice slide which the kids liked. The restaurant is fine. It gets busy and the food is cooked to order and so isn't fast, but it's tasty... Portions are large, which is good because it's not cheap! (Like everywhere in Zermatt).

  • Take a smooth ride in a cable car up the side of the matterhorn to reach the top ; you can take a break in the restaurants as a short stop off before reaching the summit, take a tour though the centre of the mountain though the glaciers. Once you take the lift up from the ski lift take time to enjoy the scenery before taking the final climb up the steps to the view point, this can mess with your head if rushed due to the altitude change, this can make you feel very light headed. The views are spectacular. Enjoy time on the various slopes skiing or snowboarding the matterhorn is a beautiful place to ski.

  • Great views. A little pricey at a 100 Franks a person to get all the way to the top and back. The prices includes the glacier paradise and observation deck. Oxygen level is low at the top so don't run. Pay attention to the departure times if you stop on your way up or down at the restaurants. When they close they close. No warning, no horn NO NOTIFICATIONS THE LAST LIFT IS LEAVING. YOU WILL HAVE TO HIKE DOWN.

  • Spectacular 360° view of dozens of peaks and the beautiful glacier. To reach it there is an elevator after getting off the cablecar, it's easy to miss so pay attention! Unfortunately after the elevator you'll still have to go up a ramp of stairs, so it's not accessible to people with physical disabilities.

  • Awesome place to be! Highly recommended to visit when enjoying activities in the area
