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.

What people are saying about Zermatt

My parents and I took the first train at 7am and saw the sunrise over the Matterhorn, so beautiful! Unbelievable views. Just a note to other travelers: if you do take the 7am train, know that you will not be able to enter the Zoom experience until 10:30, the cafe does not open until 9am, and if you want to shop at the top, it also does not open until 9am! So if you go for sunrise, prepare to be at the top until the next train, with limited access to other things.

We loved it, there were 3 amazing panoramic cable cars climbs! Up there is everything to see and live! The panoramic views even in spring have lots of snow falling and people skiing!!!

Must do this if u are coming to Switzerland . I have done Titlis & Zungfrau . But by far Matterhorn beats them all

Worth every penny to view the Matterhorn, Breithorn, Gorner glacier, and a simply inspirational view.

Incredible experience! We are amazed … just missing the glass of wine at the Majestic Cervin ice bar
