My parents and I took the first train at 7am and saw the sunrise over the Matterhorn, so beautiful! Unbelievable views. Just a note to other travelers: if you do take the 7am train, know that you will not be able to enter the Zoom experience until 10:30, the cafe does not open until 9am, and if you want to shop at the top, it also does not open until 9am! So if you go for sunrise, prepare to be at the top until the next train, with limited access to other things.

Spectacular View of the Matterhorn on an (almost) cloudless day - 09-03-21. You'll be disappointed if it is overcast and the mountains are not visible. My day was almost perfect and I could see and capture pictures and memories of all the 3,000m + peaks. Be caseful of the lack of oxygen at that height. Walk slowly, breath deeply.

Worth every penny to view the Matterhorn, Breithorn, Gorner glacier, and a simply inspirational view.

The exchange of the voucher at the cash register went smoothly.

Great ride up the mountain. Everything very uncomplicated.
