Stay overnight on the Klein Matterhorn

Lodge at the matterhorn glacier paradise

Clouds Clouds Clouds

Please note

The Lodge Matterhorn Glacier Paradise will be closed from 1 May 2019 to 30 April 2022 due to construction work on the Klein Matterhorn.

Wake up in the morning at almost four thousand metres – that sounds like a special experience in itself. And the Matterhorn glacier paradise Lodge is only the starting point for your next adventure in the Valais Alps around Zermatt. A number of hikes, including high-Alpine tours, start from the peak of the Klein Matterhorn, at 3'883 metres where Europe’s highest mountain station is situated.

The modern accommodation has four rooms each with eight beds, two showers and toilets. It is the ideal base for hiking parties. The zero-energy building, which also houses the Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant, the Peak Shop and a seminar room, was renovated in 2013. This ultramodern project is a model of sustainability and has earned Zermatt Bergbahnen AG several awards.

And the best thing is: the lodge is open year-round

Matterhorn glacier paradise

Anyone staying overnight in the middle of the Matterhorn glacier paradise should take the opportunity to enjoy the attractions at Europe’s highest mountain station. These include: the Glacier Palace, where you can immerse yourself in the world of eternal ice 15 metres below ground; the viewing platform with its 360° panorama taking in 38 peaks over four thousand metres and 14 glaciers in three countries; and the Cinema Lounge – perfect for rainy days.


Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant

Diligent hikers can fortify themselves in the restaurant before tackling energy-sapping tours through Zermatt’s mountains. Swiss specialities such as rösti, a juicy piece of meat or a vitamin-rich salad are just the thing for charging up the energy reserves. Before or after the hike.


Meetings and incentives

Have you ever thought of combining your next seminar with a hike in the Swiss Alps? Anyone on the lookout for a special incentive programme will find what they need at the Matterhorn glacier paradise. The fresh mountain air stimulates creativity, and an outing to the next peak makes a great diversion after a hard-working day.

And best of all: The building has a fully equipped seminar room for up to 72 people. Groups staying overnight in the Matterhorn Lodge can use the room free of charge. And the restaurant has special offers on apéritifs and menus for groups of ten or more.
