The normal ascent of the Breithorn is the easiest four-thousand-metre peak to summit in the Zermatt area. It offers you the fantastic experience to climb up to 4000 metres for the first time. In the morning you take the cable car up to Matterhorn glacier paradise (3883 m) and then begin the ascent. The ascent and descent in snow and ice takes approx. 3 – 4 hours and is suitable for experiencend hikers.
