Intro

The best views of the Matterhorn are from the summit of the Gornergrat at 3,089m.The highest-altitude open-air cog railway in Europe operates all year round.

Surrounded by no fewer than 29 4,000-metre giants such as the majestic Matterhorn and the Dufourspitze as well as the third-longest glacier of the Alps, Gornergrat rewards visitors with a view that is overwhelming indeed.


Adventure world
In summer, marvel at the reflection of the Matterhorn on the surface of the Riffelsee and enjoy great hiking trails and cycling routes on this adventure mountain. In winter, the beautiful tobogganing run from Rotenboden to Riffelberg is just one of the experiences on offer, with sunny pistes, a children’s ski park and snowball fights on the winter hiking trail all sure to delight both young and old.
