While staying in Vevey/Montreux, we decided to go to Zermatt and from there to Gornergrat Bahn which is almost 3 hours away from Lake Geneva area. As expected, Swiss trains were punctual and comfortable. We reached Zermatt around 11:00am and then headed for Gornergrat. One piece of advice: If you are taking train to Zermatt make sure to let the train officer knows that you are also planning to go to Gornergrat. This way you will be given coupons which would qualify you for a discount on the train ticket to Gornergrat plus a free cap and a free photo with Saint Bernard on the top. There is a good restaurant right at 3,089m and of course a beautiful view of Matterhorn and several other tips and glaciers. Make sure to take some sort of warm clothes with you. After returning to Zermatt, you really need to walk through this beautiful place and have a coffee or beer before returning back. What an experience !
