  • 很漂亮 非常值得去 也可以在山頂玩雪 登山火車沿路風景很漂亮 山上的溫度很低 要多準備保暖衣物 山頂上的自助餐廳食物比較普通 
  • Took the gondola of hefty charges, was that during to the Observatory. Matterhorn view from there and the European Alps mountains was of inexpressible in words. Is worth or how much money it takes, go there!

  • It offers a panoramic view of the Alps with The Matterhorn including mountains in neighbouring countries such as France and Italy. The top is covered with snow all year round, so it's a good place to ski. It has other attractions such as ice caves and tube riding. Recommended great place for families with children.
  • Please don't skip this when you reach Matterhorn peak. The ice sculptures inside the icey cave are quiet an experience
  • Great Snow spread. Cheaper than Jungfraujoch and almost the same fun. Ice cave is great. Zermatt is also very beautiful.
  • Great place for skiing even during the summer. If you are visiting this place, don't forget sunglasses, for the snow will quite literally blind you.
  • The Glacier Paradise houses an ICE Lounge which plays short movies related to skiing and the wildlife around the area. There is also a glacier palace a level down where you find a variety of things made of ice including an Audi car, throne.. etc. Tickets are expensive though at 58 chf.
