Gornergrat Bahn Reviews & Ratings

  • Great place to have a view to the matterhorn. All services were running on time and staff was friendly. Up there the views from the Alps are wonderful. There's a big terrace but a small self service restaurant which is very small for high season, so expect it will be packed. Also only 2 cashiers so the lines were long (even on low season). Super recommended!

  • A fast and efficient service. Although pricey, even though we got a 50% reduction from having a Swiss Railcard, it was an unmissable opportunity to see the high mountains. The views were awesome.

  • Spectacular views on the way up, ticket allows you to get on and off at any station in the way down. I took the second train up and it was perfect! Got up there by 8:40 and had it all to myself

  • One of the most mind-blowing train experiences I've ever had! We were lucky to have SO much snow in early May (spring) which enhanced the beauty. The train was extremely comfortable and the service was top-notch.

  • You can enjoy amazing view from train and from the station. When I visited, I couldn't go to the top due to snow storm. But the view from the station is unforgettable, special experience for me. Next time, I wanna visit during summer.
