It's very comfortable for usual tourists and for skiers, allways in time, staff is very polite. It's very safe seems to me.

Because I don't ski but wanted to get up there to see for my self I chose this trainride. It's quite expensive but when you go after 12.15 pm you pay 30 Chf less for a round trip (57 Chf instead of 87 Chf). The weather was very good; a clear blue day and the views are stunning. The food... More

This very old almost historical railway has nothing of an old train: it transports hundreds and hundreds of skiers and boarders every day during winter season; they take this train just in the middle of town in Zermatt. THe some non-sports people enjoy the breath-taking view on the Matterhorn while their sports colleagues are preparing for the great skiing possibilities... More

The views are simply amazing, as beautiful as it can be. The way is about 30 minutes and it passes by so fast, because one can only be stunned by this beautiful nature path.

We spent one day in Zermatt and chose to use our time by taking the Gornergrat Bahn up to the top. This was a great decision; it gave us a fantastic view of the area and of Matterhorn. Would highly recommend! We have the half-fare card which makes it cheaper but I would probably have paid full price anyway!

Pricey but if you should visit only one spot in Zermatt, go there ! Wear warm clothes as the top is above 3000m !

Luckily weather was clear. We bought the tickets in front of the main train station. It is pricey even though we got discount on our swiss pass. We started around 11 a.m. from Zermatt . It takes 30-40 min to reach Gornergrat. The journey was awesome.The view from train was breathtaking .We took window seats and took lots of snaps.... More
