Experience

If you want to discover the dazzling beauty of the Alps, you’ll soon realise that the trip to Gornergrat is a “must- see” excursion.
Its sunny viewing platform, accessible all year, makes the Gornergrat ridge a top destination, and not just because of its altitude. Surrounded by 29 peaks rising to above 4000 m and by Switzerland’s greatest mountain and second longest glacier in the Alps, it offers a spectacular mountain panorama second to none. And the «Matterhorn Railway» renders it so close you can almost touch it.

Departing from Zermatt, Europe‘s highest open-air cog railway has travelled up onto the Gornergrat, at 3089 metres a.s.l., since 1898. Each of the 9339 metres travelled is an experience in itself, every second of the 33 minutes of travel time an unforgettable pleasure. 29 four-thousand metre peaks – from the Matterhorn through to the Monte Rosa – form a guard of honour. What‘s more, the magnificent vistas from the viewing platform, which remains accessible throughout the year, are all included in the ticket price.
