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.

Mobile phone and Internet reception from here up is pretty bad - my tip to the hotel reception go and ask for the WiFi password (who are very friendly and give also to non - hotel guests)
