The Gornergrat Railway first takes you from Zermatt to the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat, where cocktails served with a selection of Valais appetisers await you. One station or activity later, you will arrive at Hotel Riffelhaus and enjoy a fabulous three-course gourmet menu before continuing with the Gornergrat train to the traditional ‘Alphitta’ restaurant on the Riffelalp. After a delectable dessert and coffee, the excursion ends with a train ride back down to Zermatt.
