First-off-all …check the weather (local weather) before you decided to go. There was a lot of clouds in Zermatt, but up there sky cleared up. Second-off-all …dressed up warm (NO t-shirt!), as the temperature goes down to 0C even in a summer. Third-off-all, you are...More

We loved going up the the glacier paradise. In all honesty we though it was going to be a childs playground but we were blown away by the beautiful ice sculptures. The views are breath taking and it was worth going out and playing in...More

Paradise somewhat an exaggeration but well worth the visit. we were skiing but ou can get there on foot via the train when I think it would have even more wow factor

We were lucky and did the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise on a crystal clear day and could see everything from the viewing platform! We stayed in Zermatt and took the gondola (with transfers) all the way to the top. The cinema and the tubing was not...More

It's not worth the money and time. Matterhorn looks a kind of lame. Much better view from Gornergrat or even from Zermutt. Why go up there to get disappointed? And you have to change your cable car 3 times ad takes an hour, not 20minutes....More

Eat and drink, admire view, take a stroll make some pictures, ski and there are ice sculptures inside the glacier. You have a last departure time around 17.00 to 18.00 so two to three hours up there will be enough. Its cold... More

Just read on TripAdvisor it takes 47 minutes. It takes three gondola rides from Zermatt. We stayed awhile at the second level to adjust to the altitude. Bathrooms on top are not free. Have fun. It is beautiful up there.

I was there August 12 and the earliest lift up from Zermatt was 6:30am according to the tourist info bureau. They would be the best to contact in case this has changed recently.
