  • Zermatt: Gornergrat Bahn Cogwheel Train Ticket

    1. Zermatt: Gornergrat Bahn Cogwheel Train Ticket

    Cross stunning bridges, ride through galleries and tunnels, idyllic forests, past gorges and mountain lakes as your climb the Gornergrat on the cogwheel train with the Matterhorn continually in view. At the summit, explore the picturesque alpine world of the Swiss Alps. With a sunny observation deck that remains accessible throughout the year, the Gornergrat at 3,089 metres above sea level provides spectacular views. The Gornergrat is surrounded by 29 four-thousand metre peaks including the highest Swiss mountain, the Dufourspitze, which has an altitude of 4,634 metres, and the third-largest glacier in the Alps, the Gorner glacier. The mountainscape panorama you'll experience is completely unique.

    Spectacular View of the Matterhorn on an (almost) cloudless day - 09-03-21. You'll be disappointed if it is overcast and the mountains are not visible. My day was almost perfect and I could see and capture pictures and memories of all the 3,000m + peaks. Be caseful of the lack of oxygen at that height. Walk slowly, breath deeply.

He picked us up at the hotel, negotiated the trains, gondolas from Zermatt to the Matterhorn Glacier Palace, enjoyed spectacular views at lunch, teenagers were able to walk in the snow, and still have time to shop in Zermatt before train back to Basel. Thank you Abraham for sharing your knowledge and making this a memorable day

The mountain railways in Switzerland are all very expensive. But because we had such fantastic weather it was worth every franc. It was not so great that the lanes are way too full during the Corona period. There is very little responsibility to be seen on the part of the railway company.

The place is fantastic. This visit was a dream come true. The service is perfect, with no surprises.

The exchange of the voucher at the cash register went smoothly.

Stunning views

Great day trip excursion with absolutely breathtaking scenery
