Simply Cool

By Linda Tancs

Amidst the aerial highway linking Zermatt and Matterhorn lies a castle of ice worthy of a princess.  Zermatt’s palace of ice is the highest glacier palace in the world.  Created in 1999, the 990-square-meter palace, 15 meters below the glacier surface, is accessible from an elevator at Matterhorn glacier paradise station.  Your entry begins with a walk through an ice tunnel, accompanied by soft lighting and mood music.  Besides the view, the site features ice sculptures and an ice slide.  If you dare, walk back via a glacier crevasse.
