Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

1. Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

Start your journey at the Zermatt-Matterhorn valley station. Within 45 minutes, reach Europe’s highest mountain station at 12,740 ft (3,883 meters) above sea level - the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. First, travel in comfort in an 8-seat gondola of the Matterhorn Express on your way to Trockerner Steg. Pass lush green meadows, old Valais hamlets, and enchanting forests before the landscape changes to one with impressive moraines and stones polished by ice and glaciers.  At Trockener Steg, hop into the highest 3S cable car transporting you up to the peak. Take in spectacular views through the panoramic windows and enjoy the heated seats while crossing the Theodul Glacier. Once you reach the summit, visit the viewing platform and marvel at 38 alpine giants of the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps as well as 14 glaciers. At the cinema lounge, enjoy short movies about mountaineering, the local fauna and flora, the lift facilities, and ice and snow. Or explore the highest ice palace in the world and admire handmade sculptures in the eternal ice. Before you leave the magical fairytale behind, try regional specialties at the restaurant or purchase Matterhorn souvenirs.

the experience was very nice because the landscape is wonderful and the cable car is very efficient and maintains the anti covid-19 safety rules. however, when you arrive in Zermatt especially if it is the first time, it is not clear where you have to go to redeem the voucher and get the ticket. in the reservation it is written that you have to go to the station at the bottom of the valley but who has never gone does not know. at the information office they explained to me, obviously not in Italian, that I had to walk for 15 minutes and then I found the ticket office and the cable car. apart from that everything was fine

Not a very busy day in early September 2021 - so everything at the very top was closed. Nevertheless a pretty good view of the Matterhorn Glacier, on a partially cloudy day. The cable cars are excellent (though not as modern as those new ones at JungFrau). There are actually 4 lifts that interconnect, so you never have to leave the same car. Cars have external racks for both mountain bikes and skiis.

"Unearthly" even attraction. Several different cable cars. Possibility of a change at each station to take photos or a little trekking. Beautiful views, the majestic Matterhorn almost at your fingertips and that adrenaline rush at the entrance to the top. Personally, I advise against people with fear of heights

Great experience and definitely worth the price in good weather. Since the booking can only be made shortly before the start, you can plan the weather well. It was a bit cumbersome at the ticket counter because we had to send our voucher by email and they would print it out. But it worked out well.

Had fun overall though the Paronama was closed at the Glacier Paradise. But stopping or getting off the Schwarzsee is highly recommend
