The Gornergrat Bahn is a great option to those who did not prepare to hike up a mountain (I had boat shoes and my girlfriend had ballet flats on!). It was a beautiful ride up the mountain, and the top was a magnificent site. No pictures can do it justice; it's great to see it with your own eyes. A... More

Nothing like it.....a cold beer and wine with light meal feeding the local birds. Train trip perfect and a whole new experience.

The Gornergrat train is a great way to get excellent view of the Matterhorn and the Swiss Alps. It is pricy but worth it. The train ride is up is fun as well to see views from above Zermatt. Once you get up there it is breath-taking and you feel like you are on top of the world. You can... More

The ride up to Gornergrat is spectacular. The train runs every 20 minutes so there is not a problems getter and and back easily. The hotel has wo meal areas, the restaurant and the self serve. The food is ok, the lady on the cash register should be employed elsewhere and the cafe has great views of the valley and... More

Beautiful views.. a must experience to take the cogwheel train aboard gornergratt to take lovely view of the swiss alps.. you can walk from one stop to the next but even if staying in the cogwheel train is worth it. View of the Matterhorn depends on luck.. sometimes on a clear weather it does not show clearly.

We visited this after Matterhorn. View and ride to top was nice, but probably not as good as the one to Matterhorn. Place may be much nicer when snow melts. Cafe and Hotel offer quite nice view.

Spectacular views. The restaurant was pretty good with a reasonable selection of food. We waited for a couple of hours for the cloud to clear from the Matterhorn, but nature did not oblige. Never mind the sun shone.

We had 2 nights in Zermatt and on the day we arrived the Matterhorn was about 75% covered with cloud. Next morning the sun was out and the skies were clear blue so we headed straight for the cog railway. You are rewarded with great views of the Matterhorn on the way up and once at the top station you... More

Gornergrat is another gem in the south of Switzerland which blew our mind with its picturesque mountain views. We took a train at the Matterhorn Terminal Tasch which cost us CHF520 for 5 adults and an child for return tickets to Zermat and Gornergrat, yes cheaper than going up to Jungfraujoch. Then at Zermat, we changed the train to Gornergrat... More

During our 10 day stay in Switzerland the weather was not good. However we took a chance and visited Zermatt because we wanted to go on the Gornergrat Railway. We were very lucky, despite the temperature being -5 degres and recent fresh snow, the sky was blue, the sun was shining and we had fabulous uninterrupted views of the Matterhorn.... More
