When the moon kisses the Matterhorn

The moon has been an object of tremendous fascination for man-kind since the dawn of time. You can experience this very same magic up close and personal with the Moonlight Magic excursion on the Gornergrat – when the moon seems to embrace and kiss the Matterhorn and envelops it in a soft silvery veil.

Afterwards, the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat will treat you to a savoury cheese fondue before you put on your skis or board the Gornergrat Railway to return to the valley.


Fondue fun including a downhill ski run

During the Moonlight Magic excursion, you will experience not only the breathtaking view of the Matterhorn by moonlight but also an exhilarating ski descent from Gornergrat towards Zermatt. After the hearty cheese fondue, visitors have the opportunity to participate in a guided ski descent. Those who prefer to take things a bit easier can ride the Gornergrat Railway back down to Zermatt in comfort. No matter which option you choose, the Moonlight Magic excursion on the Gornergrat is worth the trip.
