Matterhorn Glacier Paradise

“En Güete” in the world’s highest mountain restaurant. The Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant is at the astonishing altitude of 3883 metres. You can easily imagine the stunning view through the panorama windows while you’re enjoying your meal: the crème de la crème of Swiss Alpine peaks are gathered all round the Klein Matterhorn, on which the restaurant stands along with the world’s highest mountain station. 

The restaurant has seating for 60, wheelchair access and conforms to the highest environmental standards. The menu offers international dishes alongside Swiss specialities. You need to charge up your energy levels to take on all the adventures awaiting outside. If you want to purchase regional articles as souvenirs or gifts to take home, you’ll find a great selection in the adjoining Peak Shop.
