  • Wonderful, stunning. Must see. A lot of 4000er around. Simply unbelieveble.

  • Incredible view all the way up to the top. It's a truly awe-inspiring experience. Absolutely no hiking involved and one can find a café at the top. So don't worry about fitness or mountain sickness. If you take the train, you can consider the half-day return ticket which is only 28 francs with a Swiss Travel Pass or equivalent. This applies from the 15:36 train onwards leaving from Zermatt. Note that this isn't listed on the website.

  • Nice train up to Gornergrat. Can be quite crowdy and the ventilation is not great - but all in all a nice trip to the top :-)

  • The views are amazing! I recommend everyone coming here! You won't regret it

  • It was such a lovely train ride, we had great weather, comfortable train. Bit busy with all the ⛷ skiers but was a pleasant ride. We had to get off before our stop as they had to clear snow from tracks. We thought we would have to walk or have to wait ages, but we were on the next train within 10 mins, very efficient. Would recommend...
