Gornergrat Railway – My Matterhorn Rail Moment
Your journey – your moment – your memory
My Matterhorn Rail Moment
To see the best of the alpine worlds, it is soon clear that you can’t do that without having been up to the Gornergrat. Even the trip up to the top is an experience in itself. You have to have seen the impressive waterfall, the dense pine forests and the colourful flowering meadows, heightened by the very best view of the mighty Matterhorn. When you get to the top, a sunny terrace awaits you at 3,131 m above sea level. In more ways than one, the Gornergrat is a top alpine excursion destination. The surrounding 29 four-thousand metre peaks, including Switzerland’s highest mountain and the Alp’s third longest glacier, make a mountain panorama equal to none. We pack the 37-minute trip up into a short film so that you can enjoy all these wonderful impressions over and over, or share them directly with the folks back home.
Purchase your ticket online, at the Gornergrat railway ticket counter or upload your ticket onto the SwissPass. Hop on board and enjoy the ride. When you get up to the top you can add a personal touch by taking a selfie at the Photopoint with the Matterhorn background. Once back in Zermatt you will find your personal film ready and waiting on www.gornergrat.ch/mymatterhorn.
My Matterhorn Rail Moment – how does that work?

On arriving at the Gornergrat station you can take your own selfie at the Photopoint, again using the Gornergrat ticket or SwissPass. This will automatically be added to your film. When you get back to Zermatt you can request your film:
