Admire the full length and vastness of the Great Aletsch Glacier in all its glory – from the Eggishorn, the 2869 m-high viewpoint. Just turn around for a view of the higher peaks: the Mönch, the Eiger, the Jungfrau, the Wannenhorn and the...more

Amazing panoramic views from the top. Cable car ticket is not cheap but it's great for those who don't have time to hike.

We took two cable cars to the top of Eggishorn and had a breathtaking panorama of several 4,000 + meter peaks with Aletsch Glacier in between them. We then hiked down the slope of the mountain.

Amazing view of the Aletsch glacier and the valley. Bring a jacket - visited in June but still snow everywhere. But the bar on top is expensive, 4 CHF for a cup of coke from a 2L bottle.

Probably one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The view to the Glacier is fantastic and also you can safely walk around to admire other views to the mountains. Local facilities are equipped and transfer time take just few minutes up and down.

We had a short stay in Zermatt and decided to check out the Aletsch glacier before heading to Italy. The travel between Zermatt and Fiesch is very convenient, unless you want to drop off luggage at Brig (like we did) or if you are looking...More

The view at Eggishorn was amazing. The cable car is very quick and efficient, well organized. I would advice to go up on a sunny day with a clear sky. Fiescheralp is nice as well and there are plenty of good restaurants. I do recommend...More
