“So many mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The train ride up is dizzying...everywhere you look there are mountains! Just when you think the view from one side of the train is awesome, you look out the other side of the train and that view is even better! There are lots of stations on the way up that you could stop at and hike around for hours with breathtaking views. Riffelalp looked wonderful! We went all the way to Gornergrat and did the tourist thing. Wonderful to see shops and WC and all sorts of tourist things up so high. St Bernard dogs are up there waiting to have your picture taken with them. You'll see Wolli too of course, telling you what altitude you're at. A really great trip with incredible views that can't be described.

“Beautiful place to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Certainly a trip to this place from the beaufiful Zermatt is worth doing! The views are magnificent, I recommend this excursion either during the Summer or the Autum, of course for those persons who like to sky, this is also an experience!

“Must visit - amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Trip up/back on the train gave us some beautiful views, but when you're up there - wow - on top of the world - in the clouds - make sure you have plenty of memory on your SD cards. A must do when in Zermatt

“Terrific Views of the Matterhorn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Despite having a Swiss Pass, we still had to pay CHF41 pp. But the views were worth the money! Try to get a good window seat on the right hand side (facing up).
