We took advantage of the nice autumnal weather. The view on the Matterhorn and the Alps was very clear.

When u reach Matterhorn u have a Choice to make when u find out about that u have to either go to Matterhorn Peak or view it from another peak which is Gornergrat.

Take the cog railway to the top and you'll get a view that is just spectacular. Depends on the weather of course and while we did get a glimpse of the Matterhorn peak it was mostly obscured in clouds. So you get the choice of a bunch of other peaks at 3000+ metres that, while not as spectacular as the... More

Take the Gornergratbhan from Zermatt up the mountain on the cogwheel train. The train trip is a great adventure and around each turn you get glimpses of the Matterhorn. At any stop along the way up or down you can get out and walk part of the trip. At the summit is striking views across the valais of the Matterhorn... More

From Zermatt, the cogwheel train takes you up the mountain for about 40 minutes to the top at about 3000 meters to enjoy the view of the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa glacier. Beautiful experience, but the weather can be somewhat iffy, which you just have to go along with. If you have a eurail pass, you get a substantial discount... More

Last time we were in Zermat, we hiked around to see the Matterhorn. This time, we took recommendation fronm the visitor center and rode a train to Gornergrat. It was well worth the trip. The train only took about 30 min. to the observation point where you can see many glaciers and snow covered mountains, including Matterhorn. We hiked down... More
