We took advantage of the afternoon ticket which is considerably cheaper (especially with additional Swiss Pass discount) but the weather just got worse and worse. The webcam pictures showed it clear at the top, however it wasn't by the time we got there. So we didn't get a view - couldn't see the viewing platform even! And all the shops... More

The ride to the top of the Gornergrat on the cog railway is worth the cost and the time. Views of glaciers and mountain peaks are spectacular (on a sunny day).

We took the train up to Gornegrat and got off at a couple of stops along the way to take in the amazing views. Make sure to get off at the Breithorn stop to get the classic picture of the Matterhorn in a reflection pond. Made it to the top for lunch and had a great meal with tremendous views... More

Fantastic train journey, although not much to do in Gornergrat when the weather is bad, unless you're braver than me.

Took the Gornergrat Bahn up to Rifflealp. It's quite expensive but well worth the views. Clean, comfortable but can get busy.

Great views of the Matterhorn, marmots if you are lucky, and plenty of glaciers. Three quarters of an hour to the top (and not cold when we went, but it can be). Spectacular - not to be missed.

We visited Zermatt In mid April and got up early on a very cold morning and went up on the train and had a fantastic experience with exceptionally beautiful views. My husband had never seen snow up close before so we had lots of fun with a little snow fight, snow angels and a pathetically dismal fail at building a... More

We enjoyed the trip up to Gornergrat by rail and the view from the top, though we waited for a very long time for the clouds to lift from around the Matterhorn, which we learned later only really happens early in the morning. We walked from the top down to Riffelberg which was well worth the effort. Some very fit... More

Recommend taking the train early in the morning to get clear views of the Matterhorn. Also great views of the glacier and Monte Rosa and surrounding peaks.
