This unique and magical world was shaped over millions of years by the immense forces of nature. And not only are the gorges and grottos spectacular in themselves – the story of their discovery has fascinated visitors for decades.

Zermatt Zermatt Matterhorn Switzerland
Discover mystical, icy worlds in the highest glacier palace in the world. Visitors arrive at the glacier palace with one of two lifts directly from the Matterhorn glacier paradise station. You then walk into the palace through an ice tunnel that is almost fifteen metres below the surface of the glacier. Adventurers and daredevils can return by walking through a glacier crevasse. Inconspicuous lighting and ethereal sounds accompany you through a small wonder of the world of glaciers. Information about the creation of the glacier palace, glaciology and impressive statues sculpted from ice round off an experience of a very special kind. The sculptures are regularly renewed.
