Mountain Nature / Park
See the Matterhorn from the perfect vantage point of Gornergrat. At an elevation of 3,089 m (10,135 ft), the mountain features a sunny observation deck from which you can catch a glimpse of its much-photographed neighbor. The mountain also boasts the world's first fully electrified cog railway and hosts a high-speed modern rail line that shuffles visitors back and forth between the base and summit, which includes a restaurant, gift shops, astronomical observatory, and Europe's highest hotel.

  • The most amazing place I have ever been. I wish I could go back again and again. It was stunningly beautiful.  more »
  • Great trip up. Great views at the top. Great food too! Try to go up on a sunny day and get a table outside for lunch. You won't regret the experience! I can be crowded though!  more »
  • the view from the top is just breath-taking; you can either walk up or down (in winter: parts of) the way between Zermatt and Gornergrat, or you just take the train up&down again  more »
