Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Photopoint

You don’t need any mountaineering skills, ropes or crampons to reach the summit of the Klein Matterhorn. Just step off the Matterhorn Glacier Ride and into the summit lift and up you go. Then you mount a flight of steps, and the summit cross is almost within touching distance.

What does an Alpine paradise look like? Probably quite like Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. The peak with Europe’s highest mountain station soars 3883 metres above sea level. The peak lift takes you up to the 360° viewing platform. The view from there is like paradise.
From the highest viewing platform in Europe visitors can enjoy a unique alpine view that knows no national boundaries. The 360° panorama opens up over 38 four-thousanders and 14 glaciers in France, Italy and Switzerland. It’s impossible to get enough of this view, which takes in the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau in the north, the craggy north face of the Breithorn in the west, and Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe, in the east. And the Matterhorn too can be seen from a different perspective up here. The long-distance view is captivating and instils a quiet, reflective mood in many visitors.
