View the Matterhorn from the Gornergrat Observatory
Since 1898, the observation platform at the Gornergrat summit has been one of the top excursion destinations in Switzerland. The summit has the best view of the Matterhorn, the most famous mountain peak in the Alps. To see this breathtaking view, climb aboard the Gornergrat train and ride Europe’s highest open-air railway. Your ride begins at the village center in Zermatt. Sit back and relax while you enjoy the mountain, lake and forest views as you ride to the 10,132 foot summit.
