The Matterhorn is a towering mountain peak that is widely regarded as one of the most iconic and recognizable mountains in the world. With its distinctive shape and stunning alpine scenery, it is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Switzerland.
There are many ways exploring Matterhorn from Zermatt village, with the Gornergrat Bahn cogwheel train and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise being our favorites.
Gornergrat Bahn is a scenic (and expensive) cogwheel train that travels up to the Gornergrat observation platform. From here, you'll be able to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Matterhorn and the surrounding alpine landscape.
A cable car from Zermatt to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is more affordable and offers stunning views of the surrounding glaciers and peaks. At the top, there is a variety of hiking options and a restaurant with panoramic views.
Make sure to to dress appropriately for the weather and altitude, and bring plenty of water and snacks to keep you fueled throughout the day.
