Summer activities on the Gornergrat

The Gornergrat is recognised for its nature; in summer it is a mountain with different climate zones and a wonderful region for hiking. Discover the glacier and high-alpine, rocky terrain as well as luscious meadows and the Arven – Swiss-pine – forest.

A view of the Matterhorn will accompany you all day long. Be sure not to miss the new exhibition ‘Zooom the Matterhorn’ on the Gornergrat itself. Another innovation is a visit to our cuddly, black-nosed sheep, who will be enjoying an alpine summer with their shepherdess. 

Do you like to be pampered? Stop at any of our many, sunny terraces or pamper yourself all day with our Gourmet Ticket. 

You can even get to know the Gornergrat by bike: early mornings and in the late afternoon the bike trails are yours and you don’t need to worry about irritated walkers.
