“Golden Spot”: the photopoint on the Gornergrat


A familiar face on the Gornergrat becomes a major attraction: the historic locomotive He 2/2 3003 – one of the three locomotives of the first generation of the Gornergrat Railway – has been repaired, gold-plated and placed in a prominent position on the summit. A short themed trail with exciting information about the discovery of the Gornergrat and the pioneering achievement in the construction of the cog railway takes you downhill to where you can create an imposing memento against a unique mountain backdrop.

Important information

The photo point is open all year round and can be experienced for free by all guests.
