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.
