Swearing Love at the Highest Point

07/10/2016

If this does not last forever: Love charms can be brought to the summit of the Matterhorn glacier paradise (3‘883 m). And this on the highest point in Europe. The aerial tramway runs up to there.

The promising of eternal love in eternal ice makes the heart beat forever for this same love. The closer to heaven, the more secure the love affirmed with a love charm is at almost 4,000 m above sea level. This with a view overlooking the Matterhorn, in sight of countless four thousand-metre peaks and under a dark blue sky. All of this lends even more wings to happiness.

Keys are Frozen in the Eternal Ice

Love charms can be purchased in the shop at 3,883 m inside the mountain station on the Klein Matterhorn. The love charm is hanged on the railing of the viewing platform in the middle of the glacier landscape. But please note: a very special place to stay awaits the key. The keys are placed in a little box. This is regularly emptied by the Zermatt Bergbahnen AG. Then the keys are stored in the eternal ice of the Glacier Palace, which is 15 m below the viewing platform.
And those who are lucky perhaps will marry a little time later in one of the twelve chapels in Zermatt.
