The Matterhorn - Review

Once you see the Matterhorn, don’t be surprised if you feel like you’ve seen it somewhere before. The shining glory of Switzerland, the Matterhorn is featured on the logo of the beloved chocolate brand, Toblerone. Right dubbed as the symbol of Switzerland, the Matterhorn is one of the most beautiful sights you’ll ever set your eyes on!

The most photographed mountain of the world, the Matterhorn seems like a jagged rock tooth, standing tall, proud and alone! The closest you can get to the Matterhorn is from the Klein Matterhorn, which is accessible by cable car and a funicular. If you do however, wish to scale the mountain, you need to be in top physical shape as it’s not going to be an easy climb. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Zermatt Itinerary 3 Days.

The Matterhorn, Zermatt Reviews

  • Amazing experience. No words to describe. Peaceful and a bliss to eyes and heart. Paradise on earth.

  • Matterhorn is beyond human words. If i can make an atempt to describe it from my humble human condition when i was looking at its grandeur, i would say It is a throne of ages, of stone and frost. Still and silent over the world, distant, imposing. Majestic and beautiful like so many mountains across the Earth, yet so unique. True contemplation.

  • Saw the Matterhorn from the Italian side . Beautiful of course. Liked to have seen from more angles.

  • Beautiful mountain. It is breathtaking when it’s sunny and there are no clouds. Snowboarding while seeing the mountain right in front of me was once in a lifetime kinda experience. I can’t wait to go back there for hiking in the summer!

  • A beautiful alpine village and home to the well known Matterhorn. Sadly the view of the peak was obscured when we went recently. It was a low season in May and sadly there was a lot of construction work going on in Zermatt which distracted from the beauty as there were huge articulated vehicles and a lot of heavy machinery noises. It's a very expensive destination but it's somewhere that you must visit in your lifetime. A lot of tourists here but understandably so.
