    If you make it all the way up to Zermatt, you must take the train up to Gornergrat. It's over 10,000 feet...you're literally on top of the world! There is a small church, eating area with restaurant (food is not the best and super expensive, but none of that matters when you're here), and million dollar views. Don't miss out on the photo opp with the Saint Bernard!!

    Very expensive but worth every penny. Highly recommended. You can take the train up and hike all the way down.

    First to Review

    An absolute must do while in Zermatt, a ride on the Gornergrat rail up to the summit of Gornergrat. The ride is very leisurely and scenic, needless to say, and smooth. Once at the summit, there are shops, viewing vantage points of the Matterhorn and the Glacier, and a couple dining options, with views of course.

    The air up here is so fresh and the view amazing! We didn't want to leave this paradise in the sky!
