The train ride was comfortable and enjoyable with the sunny day. Really enjoyed ourselves up at the top even though we didn't go to ski.

This is a great trip to take once you're in Zermatt. Cool trip up to the top of the mountain and then a great view of the town and of the Matterhorn! Nice gift shop and restaurant at the top. Make sure to dress warmly, it's pretty chilly once you get to the top.

Nice panorama view on top and quick to go up. However, experience is similar to Jungfrau but less spectacular. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed going up there :)

Zermatt is a perfect ski town and the Gornergrat was an amazing ride! We spent as much time on the top as possible. The ride was smooth and the views are awesome. Worth every cent to go up to the top and enjoy a lunch - even on a cloudy day! It is snowy and a little slippery at the... More

This was my first alps train ride. What a fantastic trip. The mountains are so very beautiful in June. The Matterhorn area was not crowded. Lots of great photo ops!

My first trip to the Swiss apps and WOW what a fantastic journey. We took out time going up the Bahn to make the most of the time considering the cost. I would recommend getting a Swiss train pass if you plan on doing a bit for travel through Switzerland as this ticket entitles you to half off for the... More

What a great adventure taking the cog train to the top of the mountain. There are several stops along the way where you can get out and walk around or hike up/down the mountain to the next stop or to the top.
