  • On a ski day or just to enjoy the view, the Matterhorn Glacier Express ultra-modern new cable car is an experience in itself. Comfortable seats, sound system, tourist information, ultra smooth, fast and silent. The ride is spectacular over the glaciers. And it is the highest gondola you can find in Europe. Worth every minute. These shots are from Easter week end 2022 when you have the ski resort almost for yourself.
  • Europe's highest mountain station. The views at the observation deck were beautiful. Also on the way up and down, you get a full view of the massive Matterhorn. There are also several activities you can do at the top, such as visiting the Glacier Palace and chilling at the Cinema Lounge. After all the fun, you can eat at the restaurant, which serves pretty decent food.
