The Goernergratbahn

Absolutely a must for some excellent winter skiing, but also a most picturesque vantage with stunning views of the Monte Rosa massif.

During our stay in Zermatt, we were disappointed to discover we were unable to do the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise due to our youngest being under the age of 2. We decided to do this activity as a conciliation. It was AMAZING. The train, both up and down, offered spectacular views on all sides. At the top, the view was second... More

It was winter time and Zermatt is cover with snow and it is white all over. It is a great experience to reach Gornergrat by this train service. Very professional service with accurate information system in place. The journey to the top through the frozen route and the nine of Alps first ten peaks looming is an experience to feel... More

This is an amazing railway that takes you to the top of the mountain with one of the best views to Matterhorn. I have seen a lot of things in Switzerland, but it showed me that there is always something new to excite me.

I absolutely loved this experience! I took the ride up in the afternoon as it's discounted after 3pm (I believe that was the time). There are a few stops along the way, but I didn't stop at any of them as the last train back is at 6pm and I wanted to spend that time at the top. It was... More

First, the warnings: 1.) this is not cheap and, if you have a Swiss Pass, you only get a discount on the fare, not a free ride! 2.) We went up in early August having been sweltering in mid-30s temperatures in Geneva and were met with snow and gale-force winds. Do not rely on the weather being good at mountaintop!... More

This was a great trip with wonderful views of skiers, the Matterhorn and other mountains. Great lunch at the summit.

We had previously been up the Gornergrat railway in Summertime and loved it. This time we were visiting in Winter. Before leaving home I researched the Gornergratbahn website and found the Gornergrat Gourmet Ticket. We decided to book places to do this amazing trip (you need to book at least a day in advance). What an interesting day we had!!... More

The train ride is very nice, very smooth and the scenery is breath taking. You can see the whole Zermatt. I would definitely be riding the train and going here again. Nice view at the top and nice ambiance in the restaurant.
