Up to the Heights

Excursions into the mountains are popular with adults and children alike. Travelling with the mountain lifts is particularly attractive in Zermatt, because they take you to the highest mountains in Europe.


The Matterhorn glacier paradise is at 3,883 m, making it the highest mountain lift station in Europe. An incomparable view like a dream of the Matterhorn panorama. And up there is where the adventure begins – with snow tubing. Those, who would rather have a rustic experience, head to the alp dairy on Stafel or take a trip with the cog railway to Gornergrat. Depending on the lift, children ride free up to 6 or 9.
