Overview

Gornergrat : Spectacular reaches new heights.

No matter how much you’ve seen of the Alps, if you haven’t taken the Gornergrat, you haven’t seen it all. This spectacular roundtrip excursion on the Gornergratbahn mountain rack railway from Zermatt will lead you to Gornergrat Railway Station on Gornergrat and a viewing platform over 10,285 feet up. You’ll see stunning views of 29 peaks, some rising over 13,000 feet. In operation since 1898, this 33-minute trip on Europe’s highest open-air cog railway is unparalleled for its breathtaking vistas and dramatic views of the Matterhorn. Scenic doesn’t begin to describe it as you’re surrounded by pristine, snow-capped panoramas. Getting goosebumps ? Probably due to both the awe-inspiring beauty as much as the crisp air. In fact, this fantastic location looks and feels so close to heaven, astronomers have often used it to study the stars. Gornergrat : even in a place surrounded by peaks, it’s where spectacular reaches new heights.
