Klein Matterhorn. The view is absolutely breath-taking: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Obergabelhorn, Zinal Rothorn, Weisshorn, Mischabel, and Breithorn bid you welcome with a deep-blues sky and corn snow.

The Breithorn (4164 m.a.s.l.) is ideal for beginners to try their hand at climbing a mountain of more than 4000 meters. Its snow-capped peak is rather flat and is thus easier to handle than most other mountains. A guide helps one get to the top in about two hours. The tour starts at the mountain station of the Klein Matterhorn (3883 m.a.s.l.).
And the view is absolutely breath-taking: from here one can see the world in a different perspective. Everyting seems to be the size of a toy, including the massive mountains Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Obergabelhorn, Zinal Rothorn, Weisshorn, Mischabel, and Breithorn.
The necessary climber's equipment can easily be rented in Zermatt. please note that one needs to be in good shape and have a sound heart. Reservations: Alpin Center Zermatt, Tel. +41 (0)27 966 24 60.

How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation from Brig to Täsch/Zermatt. If driving, park the car in Täsch and from there take the train. From Zermatt take the cable-car to the Klein Matterhorn Glacier Paradise.
