  • An amazing sight, from any angle. Great view from Eggishorn, but from the middle station (Fiescheralp) you can walk though a long tunnel past Märjelensee right to the edge of the glacier.
  • Absolutely magnificent view, definitely worth visiting. Lift prices aren't cheap, but it's 100% worth it for the view you get at the top.
  • Excellent panorama view! Tickets for lift really aren't cheap but what you get for the price is great.
