Having climbing peaks, this mountain is my favorite since I first saw it on our black and white tv as a small child. Pray for clear skies the day you visit Zermatt, so you can see it in all it's majesty.

Ascending to the Matterhorn itself was an unbelievable adventure...and then one arrived at the top! The glacier and observation areas were incredible and awe-inspiring...as was the hot chocolate in the shop! This is a not-to-be-missed experience.

I visited here with my parents several years ago. We are not skiers, but there is plenty to do otherwise. The gondola ride up the Little Matterhorn from Zermatt is worth it.

From our experience , going up the Matterhorn glacier vide the cable car appeared to be the ideal option . These trips can be done at most times during the day ....one can walk and buy the tickets .. Thx

Zermatt is a beautiful village, in august it will be hot unless you go to the mountain tops. The gornegat railway trip would be suitable for a two year old as you can visit this comfortably, I think the cable car to the top... More
