Since 1979, the cable car has boldly made its way from the Trockener Steg to the Klein Matterhorn station, cut out of the rockface 50 metres below the summit.

The Zermatt Bergbahnen AG take the visitors comfortably from the village of Zermatt to the highest mountain station in Europe. After an impressive ride with the Matterhorn Express – gondola without change to the station Trockener Steg – continue with the remarkable cable car to Matterhorn glacier paradise. With only three masts and a distance of almost three kilometres without support, the 100-person cable car glides directly to the summit wall.

The highlights of the Peak Matterhorn glacier paradise are the following: Cinema Lounge with exciting film scenes, an observation deck with 360-degrees panoramic views, a glacier palace with sculptures and an ice chute, a restaurant with Peak Shop and accommodations for mountaineers with minergie-P standard.
