  • Our first experience to see snow and hold in hand. And Matterhorn is at its best and i am still dreaming to go there again and enjoy one more time for whole day 
  • These caves should last forever, but nothing does Kids would love this cave system and the ice slide insode 
  • We had perfect weather, which made this experience amazing. I would definitely recommend it. The views were spectacular. Riding the gondolas was fun and worth the price of the ticket. 
  • Great Snow spread. Cheaper than Jungfraujoch and almost the same fun. Ice cave is great. Zermatt is also very beautiful.
  • It has only one restaurant and they close at 3. It was exhausting to go up the mountain and you have no restaurant after 3 . please be prepared especially if you have old people with diabetes. Restaurant cashier was so rude while saying it was closed. As usual cashier don't speak English. Ticket was very very very expensive with a huge disappoinment at last. Not a perfect tourist place with all facility you need.
  • 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.
  • Breathtaking views of the have to go out on the top (metal stairs) to the top...and it is COLD. Make sure you have gloves and a cap and a wind protector.
  • A great place for people who like cold places. The glacier palace is there. Do not wear summer clothings if you want to go to the glacier palace. There is a restaurant exactly at the glacier paradise station, so for those who are late, you can take lunch at the restaurant. It serves quite a variety of food.
