5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Station nearby main rail station. Everything was fine. Comfortable seats, "Swiss watch punctuality". Astonishing views from train.

“A very worthwhile trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you are intending to see the Matterhorn from here, you need to really get up there early. As the clouds starts to settle during 9-10am, and you will miss the peak of the Matterhorn. Best time to arrive is probably 7-8 am, as you get to trek to the top of Gornergrat (not too tough) and get a good view of the surroundings. The only thing to dislike about this place is probably the food selection. Pretty limited to only one restaurant up here, so do come only after your breakfast.

“Great trip on the cogwheel railway and walks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

With views of the Matterhorn and down the valley, and great walks this is a must. We enjoyed the walks as they were for the energetic, and had different views at every corner. This is a fun and enjoyable day trip from Zermatt, well worth the expense.

“Definitely need to do this trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Best thing we did in Zermatt. The views of The Matterhorn are spectacular and you also can see Castor, Pollox and a couple of other mountains, 5 glaciers in all. We were lucky and had a clear day so not sure what the views would be if it was overcast, not much I would think. The train itself is an experience!!

“Stunning Scenery Train Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Not the quickest ascent up the mountain to go skiing but undoubtably one of the most pleasant. The scenery is fantastic and the slopes from the Gornergrat are some of my favourites. MUST DO the evening trip up in the dark. Dont miss the last train back down though :o) Full Moon when we did this - amazing!
