At 3,089 metres above sea leave, Gornergrat offers magnificent views of 29 4,000-metre mountain peaks including the mighty Matterhorn, Dufourspitze (Monte Rosa’s highest peak), Liskamm, Dom and Weisshorn completed with the stunning Gorner Glacier. It can be reached from Zermatt by the historic Gornergrat Railway, the first rack railway to be built in Switzerland.
