We will arrive in the evening in Zermatt from Wengen and stay for 1 night. We’ll spend the time the next day for enjoying the view of mountain and surrounding then continue to Lausanne as our last stop in order to be closer to Geneva airport. This Friday should be sunny according to weather prediction (hopefully won’t change!).

Kindly advise what activity we can do to maximize our time to enjoy the magnificent of Zermatt and surrounding. Is there a specific area or view spot to see it in perfect view, like taking a cable car or something else?

Thank you so much in advance!

Hi deedee,

The two most popular mountains to go up for Matterhorn views are Gornergrat (https://www.myswissalp s.com/gornergrat) & Klein Matterhorn/Glacier Paradise (https://www.myswissalp s.com/kleinmatterhorn)

For other ideas and hiking suggestions, have a look at our Zermatt activity page: https://www.myswissalp s.com/zermatt/activiti es

HI Dee

We did Gornergrat last week from Zermatt. It is only about a 30 minute ride up, well worth it, the Glacier Paradise wasn't running on the day we went up so can't comment on that.
