The Matterhorn, Zermatt Reviews

  • I actually never expected to see this miracle of a mountain, so when we arrived in Zermatt, and it popped out of the clouds, it was completely breath-taking. We came with a tour group, and had no intention of skiing, but even in the autumn, it would have been possible. The peace of the mountain and the town is not disturbed by loud vehicles, as the town requires soundless electric ones only. This has the added benefit of keeping the skies clear for the magical moments, usually in the morning, when the Mountain comes out to be admired. Go. Cross this off your Bucket List.

  • stands beautifully amidst snow clad region. going up in the train from the beautiful town of zermatt it's a feeling unmatched. absolutely chilly cold even when it was summer time. can take the train or the cable car. different routes and different experience. climate changes very fast and we were lucky with a clear climate for most part and a fantastic view of the peak. it's less crowded compared to other Swiss destinations

  • Love love it. Have been there twice and would go again. Loved the Trail in the inside the Glacier. A natural wonder as it is.

  • Loved it beautiful view. Tourist guide? 10/10. I loved it. They were lovely. Go there. Now.

  • World class pride in the beautiful creation by a Great God.
