Welcome to Gornergrat

Pleased to welcome you on the mountain – here are some tips for your stay:

Fun Facts

A normal, 3-minute soft-boiled egg in the valley needs 6 minutes on Gornergrat.

Take in liquids regularly; at an altitude above 2500 metres or more the body needs more hydration.  You should drink about 4 to 5 litres per day.

Eat carbohydrates, not fatty foods; they require less oxygen to digest.
