A trip to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is not to be missed. It’s located at the summit of Klein Matterhorn. Standing at a height of 3,883 metres, the summit is the highest place in Europe that can be reached by aerial tramway or gondola lift. From the viewing platform, you’ll take in uninterrupted vistas of the Matterhorn and surrounding alpine landscape.
