We travelled on the Gornergrat Bahn all the way to the top. great photos to be had on the way up as well as at Gornergrat. The chance to see the Matterhorn up close is great. You don't have to wait long for the next train either.

Even if you don't ski you should take a ride to Gornergrat. It's probably one of the most beautiful train rides in the world. Maybe about 30 min to the top but along the way you have a great view of the Matterhorn as well as other ranges, you may spot some deer also.

Every turn the bahn takes, you are rewarded with beautiful views. Worth every penny. Just need to ensure to take it only when its a clear sky or its a wasted trip!

Skiers can also hop on this as part of their pass but I think it is a great option for those who want to be "in" the mountains and see the Matterhorn w/o involving sport.

Lovely train ride to the Gornergrat, wether it may be skiing or visiting the 360 degrees platform! Amazing views of the Matterhorn.

It's a must do if you're in Zermatt, just to get a view on the glacier and the Matterhorn! It's not a long train ride and there are plenty of occasions to snap beautiful photos of the Matterhorn. The ticket allows to hop on and off as you please on the way down. They offer happy hours if you go... More

The accessible peaks of this region - Schwartzee, Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn, all give stunning, but very different, views of the Matterhorn. All are worth visiting, so don't think that when you've been to one, you've seen the Matterhorn! From Gornergrat there are also good views over to Switzerland's highest mountain, Monte Rosa, sitting in it's sea of glaciers.

Nice views as the train winds through the forest from Zermatt to Gornergrat. If you don't want to make a lot of stops there are a few trains throughout the day that go non-stop from Zermatt to Gornergrat. Not 5 stars because if you don't have a ski pass (which lets you on the train) it's quite pricey to ride... More

Was fun to see the views the scenery was amazing for photos and there was shopping at the top and telescopes to view the scenery (for 1 frank) dress warmly as the wind was heavy and was -13 (when we went)
