In the Breithorn Tunnel, at the Matterhorn glacier paradise, is Europe’s highest picture house: the Cinema Lounge. Visitors are introduced to Zermatt’s alpine world with captivating film sequences lasting several minutes each and covering subject matter that includes mountaineering, the local fauna and flora, the lift facilities and ice and snow.
The comfortable shell seats and mystical mood lighting in the tunnel ensure that the climatic conditions at 3883 metres above sea level are quickly forgotten. So, if you feel like relaxing after the exciting journey on the Matterhorn glacier ride while you get acclimatized to the thin mountain air, why not take a detour into the Cinema Lounge?
Admission is free and it’s a great place to visit if the weather is bad or to get a foretaste of the high-alpine world of adventure that is the Matterhorn glacier paradise.
