The Gornergratbahn brings you from Zermatt to the Gornergrat which is 3.089 meters high. There you will find youself surrounded by 29 ice- and snowcoverd 4000 meter high peaks of the swiss alps.

You will see Matterhorn(4478m), Liskamm(4527m) or Dufour-Spitze (4634m).

The train covers a distance of 9.339 meter and climbs 1.485 meter. The highest speed on the whole trip will be 28 km/h.

There is also a hotel on gornergrat, the highest hotel in Switzerland.

I recommend taking the train upwards and walk down to zermatt, which will take around 3-4 hours depending on your fitness. Be careful: You find yourself in an high-altitude zone, so make sure you have the right gear!

The trainticket is 36,- Sfr one way, 72,- Sfr returnticket (2007)

I know it does not come cheap, but I highly recommend it. Its well worth the cash.

My parents were in Zermatt this year and loved it. I must make time to explore more of Switzerland!
