an excursion laden with superlatives: the Matterhorn glacier paradise
High, higher, Matterhorn glacier paradise. A trip to the highest mountain station in Europe is one unbeatable experience after another. Superlatives abound on an excursion to the summit of the Klein Matterhorn ...
A climb to 3'883 metres of altitude lies behind you as you exit the new Matterhorn glacier ride. The question now is what to do first on your day of adventures?
Highlights at 3'883 metres
The greatest highlight of all is probably the 360-degree viewing platform – the highest in the Alps. It gives a view over 38 four-thousand-metre peaks and 14 glaciers of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps. Feel free to count them.
If you like ice sculpture, you must include a visit to the underground Glacier Palace, the highest of its kind anywhere in the world. Film buffs can look forward to some riveting footage from the Alpine world in the Cinema Lounge in the Breithorn tunnel. Definitely worth keeping in mind for a rainy day.
The modern Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant is the perfect place for lovers of good food. Specialities of the Valais region, an open-view kitchen and panoramic windows guarantee all-round enjoyment. And in the Peak Shop next door you can buy souvenirs of the region for your nearest and dearest.
