Gornergrat Railway

Departing from the resort town of Zermatt and ascending through the high valleys, alpine forests, tunnels, and bridges in the pursuit of the Gornergrat summit, the Gornergrat Railway offers a ride that is as scenic as it is impressive. Views of some of the highest peaks in the Swiss Alps overtake the landscape, with 29 of the surrounding mountains soaring well-over 13,000 feet into the air. One of the most recognizable sights on the route, though, is the mighty Matterhorn. This iconic behemoth draws attention for its impressive height of nearly 15,000 feet and its distinct pyramid shape.

At the top of the Gornergrat, the vistas are breathtaking. Staggering mountainscapes meet views of the Gorner Glacier, the second-largest glacier in the Alps. The observation platform is the perfect place to look upon the Monte Rosa Massif and its towering peaks, including the Dufourspitze, the second-highest mountain in Switzerland.

When it comes time to descend the mountain, the trip is slightly longer, at approximately 45 minutes. The train continues to impress with its ingenuity, now utilizing a regenerative braking system that produces its own electricity and conserves energy otherwise. Much like the trip up the mountain, guests relax in comfortable seats next to large picture windows.

Serving guests every day of the year since 1928, the Gornergrat Railway is the best way to access the trails, sights, and incredible scenery that surrounds Gornergrat Mountain.

“Great way to see the country side and loved the accommodations. Train Stations were a bit hectic and stressful. I think the challenges of getting luggage and seating on the train was understated but found the trains to be clean and comfortable once settled. The boat was a wonderful experience and offered an intimate way to travel the Rhine and have the opportunity to make acquaintances. Some stops were a bit rushed and would have enjoyed more time to explore the cities on our own. Everyone was very accommodating and pleasant.
