Gornergrat Bahn - The Matterhorn Railway

The Gornergrat presents the world of the Alps in all its glory. The trains on Europe’s highest open-air cog railway run every 24 minutes and take you from Zermatt to the sunny viewing platform (2089m). Surrounded by 29 4000-metre peaks, including the majestic Matterhorn and Dufourspitze, to say nothing of the Alps’ third-longest glacier, the Gornergrat commands panoramic views worthy of all hyperbole. When dew still lies on the meadows and nature slowly begins to stir – visitors will be experiencing an unforgettable sunrise. Take all the time to enjoy this indescribable experience! Afterwards, hiking, biking and shopping await.
