“Great trip for different view of Matterhorn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Relaxing and fantastic views of the surrounding area as you ride the cog-railway up to the top of the Gornergrat. At the top is a hotel where you can get something to eat and shop. But the viewing platform gives you a stunning view of the Alps including the Matterhorn.

“Great Train, Potential for Great Views But Depends on the Weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We rode this train for the sunset dinner ride. The train was clean and comfortable and the ride afforded some great views, but the weather at the top was socked in with clouds and as such the sunset was diminished a little bit. Still fun. Would do again on a clearer day in a heartbeat.

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.
