“It's a awe inspiring mountain”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

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.

“A Must See”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

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!

“Must-see in Zermatt”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

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

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

I've hiked a lot of peaks in the Colorado Rockies, Canadian Rockies, and New Zealand and I have to say, the Matterhorn tops my list of stunning sights. It is far more beautiful than movies, photos, and Disneyland makes it out to be. We took the gondola up to Schwarze and followed the Matterhorn Glacier Trail. It was GORGEOUS! You see The Matterhorn from many different angles. The second day, we took the gondola up to Rothorn and followed the 5 Lakes Trail for another day of gorgeous Matterhorn views. I LOVED this area and definitely want to return. Your camera will run out of space with all the scenic photo opportunities! Seriously.

“More stunning than I ever imagined”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Great direct trips via cable car or varied hiking routes to & around the surrounding areas of the Matterhorn. Loved the new Matterhorn restaurant & viewing platform on the way to the Glacier Paradise - truly a once in a lifetime trip
