Europe's HIghest Cogwheel Railway

Save to my Account

The 40-minute ascent from Zermatt to Gornergrat (3089m or 10,135ft) on Europe’s highest cogwheel railway is a sure-fire recipe for staggering mountain views and a sense of wonder (and not just at the steep price of the return ticket!).

Best Matterhorn Views?

If you’re angling for the best Matterhorn views, make sure you’re sitting on the right-hand side of the carriage when coming from Zermatt. Once you’re at the top, you’ll be able to eat, drink, shop or sleep at the 3100 Gornergrat Kulm Hotel, a swish and sleek option with a good amount of style.

It’s also possible to walk between stops on the train journey, in case you want to make a full day of it. Discounts of 50% are available with various Swiss travel passes, so check when buying your ticket for the Gornergratbahn.
