Hiked down on vet warm summer day, it is crowded at first and steep but you can get away a bit if you take the trail to the right after going a bit of a ways. Most folks went the other way. Still steep, no shade, but beautiful. Free WiFi at the top was fun to post some photos before... More

We visited the Gonergrat twice during our recent stay in Zermatt and we enjoyed it thoroughly both times. The first day we were trying to acclimatise so we were keen to spend a day up there , hiking down a bit and back up again before having a lovely relaxing drink on the hotel terrace and taking in the magnificent...

After our trip to Sunnega & Rothhorn I was not sure if this will be worth the money. But the exprience is very different and views are amazing. The Rafelsee lake is absolutely must see place. The reflection of Matterhorn in the lake is a unforgettable view. Remember to keep the ticket handy as every station you get off you... More

Great train ride, great views, great walk back down the mountain, or as far as you want before re-joining the train back down again.

We were hoping for a sunny day for this trip as we thought we would have the best views with that kind of weather - and we were right - it would have been amazing to have the views with blue skies and sunshine - HOWEVER...we got even luckier and ended up with a late May heavy snow - and... More

I can only imagine how it's like during winter. We made several stops on the way up tempting to really get off at every stop but I had to go all the way up. The view in the summer is absolutely breathtaking and I will definitely return in the winter to truly get the feel of wonder and mystery. For... More

What an amazing experience to travel up to 3000m above sea level to see the Matterhorn and be offered even better views of the other mountains and valleys. We did have great weather Also the ticket inspector on the train from Visp helped with a discounted ticket for travel after 3pm.

This is a must do. We were lucky and had a very nice sunny day for our trip. The views virtually from the start of the trip are stunning. You can hop off the train at different stations either on the way up or the way back down. We decided to take a picnic lunch with us. We hopped off... More

This is a must do tourist attraction when in Zermatt! We throughly enjoyed our day. The views really are spectacular and the rail system itself is very efficient. Once up the top there is a large restaurant/bar area for drinks, meals if you can stop yourself from taking photos just long enough to enjoy. Would recommend this to anyone visiting... More

One cannot leave Zermatt without going up this train to the top of Gornergrat. Great views of the glaciers in the Zermatt valley and the Matterhorn. MUST GO!
