It is the slowest express train you will take but every second of the 7.5 hour trip is worth it.

From Zermatt, the Gornergrat Bahn will bring you thru fairytale forests and alpine meadows as it goes up the Gornegrat. When the weather is excellent, the Matterhorn will be in full view. When you get to your destination, you can relax, enjoy the panorama, and some hot fondue.
