Sit back and enjoy the ride over impressive bridges, through galleries and tunnels, past forests of larch and Swiss stone pine trees, alongside stone gorges and mountain lakes – even the 33-minute journey to the summit of the Gornergrat on Europe’s highest open-air cog railway is a unique experience.
Once you arrive at around 3,100 meters above sea level, a stunning mountain panorama awaits you. On a clear day, you have an unobstructed view of 29 four-thousand-meter peaks – including the iconic Matterhorn (did you know that the Matterhorn is considered the most photographed mountain in the world?) and the Dufourspitze – as well as the largest and longest glacier in the Alps, the Aletsch Glacier.
In addition to the spectacular views, the Gornergrat has so much more you can experience. It offers beautiful hiking trails and well-developed biking routes in the summer, as well as an adventurous toboggan run and expansive ski runs in the winter.
