I went more than one time. Make sure if staying for a few days to get a ticket to go up all the cable cars for the days you will be staying do not get for one day only. I would have loved to stay up in hotel. The hikes from up there are a bit difficult but worth. So... More

Wonderful views, but don't be too eager to buy a return ticket, as it's no cheaper than two singles, and the walk down, or part of the way down is very rewarding. We met one couple who had bought return tickets at full price, then walked most of the way down, so could have saved themselves a lot of money!

This train up to the Gornergrat gives you fantastic views of the Matterhorn and the surrounding mountains and glaciers. There are several stops along the way so that you can ride to the top and bike or walk down to the next one or more, then catch the train again if you like. We went after 3:00 and got a... More

We took the train up to the Matterhorn and took in the marvelous views. On the way down we stopped and ate a great lunch in one of the stops. It was a full day's ordeal.

I read about this trip and watch on YouTube a video. Nothing does it justice until you do it. Sit on the right side going up if you can. Get to the station early and board as soon as you can to get a good seat. Coming back will be crowded you may have to stand. Be early to get... More

The train ride is expensive but worth every franc. It is a superb train ride up the mountain and you can get off at any of the stops and get back on. The views at the top are incredible, just mind blowing. My suggestion would be to get the train up and then walk down at least a couple of... More

This is a comfortable and quick route to some of the best views of the Matterhorn and surrounding mountains. I went at sunset and had some a truly memorable experience.

Great view of Matterhorn! You could get a perfect snapshot of Matterhorn here. The outdoor seat in the restaurant near the train station is recommended.

The trip up to Gornergrat is made very easy via the Gornergrat Bahnhof as it is easily reached across from the train station and there are no transfers involved. It takes about half an hour to the top. The views of the valley and the mountains along the way are spectacular. This is probably the fastest way up and back... More

The trip up the Gornergrat Bahn was beautiful and so much fun. We decided to do it sort of as a last minute thing while in Zermatt but were so glad we did. I was surprised by the number of people that we saw walking or bicycling, but for me, I would take the train. A delight indeed.
