This last photo of the Matterhorn gallery is a view of Matterhorn from the highest sightseeing platform in Europe accessible by cableway at 3883 meters above sea level! Can you get any higher? Without a hike :~D

Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

Thanks to moderate snowfalls during the evening and the whole night the strong wind was blowing snow from all the higher peaks including the mighty Matterhorn..

The beautiful orange view of the Matterhorn peak, that was viewable only for a short time during the early mornings was so fascinating, that I had to take more and more photos!

My favorite panorama from Klein Matterhorn.. A lot can be seen on this pano – French Alps (Mont Blanc), Swiss Alps (Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Obergabelhorn, Zinalrothorn, Weisshorn, and many others) + part of the Italian Alps …

The last photo is a sparkling icy ceiling. I hope you enjoyed this Ice Palace section as much as the other galleries and you will have time to visit this fantastic high-altitude sensation on your own.

The mountains will always be there, the trick is to make sure you are too!

This photograph is taken at the same moment as the second picture above, just the Matterhorn peak is zoomed a little bit to give you an idea how hard it must be to climb this holy of “holies” …

Mountains are not fair or unfair - they are just dangerous.

Reinhold Messner

Take only pictures; leave only footprints.


As you can see the view of Matterhorn from this place is pretty much different than the famous ‘Swiss chocolate’ views that could be seen on the previous photos.
