For a classic train experience in the Alps, hop on Gornergrat, one of the highest railway lines in Europe. Opened in 1898, the railway takes sightseers and hikers from the resort village of Zermatt to the very top of a rocky ridge in the western part of the Alps. The first electric rack railway built in Switzerland, the line passes through a popular skiing area, noted for its 29 peaks reaching above 4,000 m (13,000 ft) in elevation. On clear days the line's terminus at the top of the ridge offers unbeatable views of the surrounding mountaintops, as well as the second largest glacier in the Alps. Our Zermatt trip builder app makes visiting Gornergrat and other Zermatt attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

ツエルマット駅近くのホテルに宿泊していたので, 乗車前に往復チケットを購入しておきました。往復114フランです(ハーフフェアで半額になります)。途中下車は何度もできますが, 同じ区間を重ねて乗車はできません。座席指定はできません。ツエルマット9時台の列車に乗りましたが, 日本のツアーの方々で満席でした。私たちと同じ席におられたのがツアーで来られた日本人の年配の夫婦の方で, 終点に着くまでいろいろと... more »I was staying at a hotel near Tsuermatt Station, so I purchased a round-trip ticket before boarding. Round trip is 114 francs (half fair and half price). You can stop over many times, but you can't ride in the same section. It is not possible to specify a seat. I got on the 9 o'clock train at Twellat, but the japanese tour was full. It was very nice to be able to talk to an elderly Japanese couple who came on tour in the same seat as us until we got to the end. Fun story and great scenery. It was a very good memory. We parted ways with them at the top, and on our way back we got off at Rothenboden station, hiked to Luffelse, and took another train from Riffelberg station back to Zermatt. It was a wonderful day.
Oh Zermatt, you beauty ❤️
A famous Scenic Train at Zermatt area. Nice view over Matterhorn. Enjoy a nice day of hiking at Gornergrat.
