Hg2 : The Hedonist

Gornergrat Railway

If you’ve got time to kill and are looking for some different things to do in Zermatt, The Gornergrat Railway should certainly be on your radar. The cogwheel train was the first form of transport for skiers in Zermatt, and this functioning museum piece is proof that uphill transport still holds nostalgic appeal. Certainly, there are quicker ways up the mountain these days – the train takes a full 40 minutes – but that’s beside the point. Hop aboard and enjoy the Swiss scenery as it rolls by; sit on the right hand side for the most spectacular Matterhorn views.
