The Matterhorn Alpine Crossing represents a new dimension of cableway travel. The highest Alpine crossing by cableway between two countries which are both enchanting in their own individual ways. Experience the outstanding mountain scenery around the Matterhorn and the features of the various stations on the way.  You can get your tickets here for a single or return trip.

Surrounded by the breath-taking mountain panorama of the Alps the new route offers thrills, luxury and the highest level of comfort. An experience in a class of its own – gliding above the amazing mountain landscapes of Italy and Switzerland with views of the instantly recognisable Matterhorn.

We also recommend our online guide for a detailed overview of the entire journey between Zermatt and Cervinia. The Matterhorn Alpine Crossing ticket also includes a "boarding pass" with the most important information about your journey. The boarding pass is available at all Zermatt Bergbahnen AG sales points.
