  • A spectacular experience going up in the cable car. The view from the viewing platform was nice. Was a beautiful day not much wind. The walk through the glacier was very nice and the ice sculptures were excellent. A must do experience. Also you can Garry down at different stations to enjoy the view.
  • If you haven't written a bucket list yet, start off and don't miss adding this one! This is one of those untouched natural beauties that need to be fully seen and absorbed! Alps caressing the sky and some of the purest air you'll ever breathe. Swiss have made a state-of-the-art work setting this attraction up for tourists: the highest cable station in Europe! If you don't get the goosebumps a couple of times during this trip you probably won't get it with anything else. AAA+++
