We splurged on our last night, getting a hotel room with a balcony facing the famous Matterhorn Mountain! It was worth every penny. It was the 150th Anniversary of the first climbers to summit the Matterhorn; and then only 3 of the 7 survived the climb down- so after dark the climbers route was lit up by lanterns for a few minutes in remembrance of the climbers who didn’t survive.

Hotel Ambiance - I just love the flower boxes everywhere! Our balcony was the one 2nd from the top.

On our last day in Europe we got up to see the sunrise, had breakfast at our hotel and then took the gondolas up to the Matterhorn Glacial Paradise.
I think the photos speak for themselves – it was absolutely breath-taking. Certainly the most beautiful mountain range I’ve ever seen!
We wished we could have stayed longer, but I hope we will go back there someday!

Cinema at the top of the mountain with heated capsules. We watched some great footage of search and rescue, and wildlife.

James really wanted to buy one of these 'tents' that they use on Everest...
