The Gornergrat Railway is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. We want to celebrate this anniversary with you and track down some of your happy moments. To do so, we would like to see your most beautiful souvenir photos from the past 125 years. Have you found some treasures on your smartphone or in a photo album? Then post your souvenir photos on Instagram. Add the hashtag #125YearsGornergratRailway to your post and tag us @gornergrat. This way you will automatically be entered in our photo competition. You can participate more than once.
On your marks, get set, post!
To take part you must have your Instagram profile set on ‘public’. The competition starts on 1 April and ends on 31 October 2023. A winning photo is selected every month.
You have no pictures yet or do you fancy taking new ones?
We look forward to your visit! Whether on a leisurely hike, an encounter with the unmistakable black-nosed sheep or a breathtaking view of the glaciers and the 29 four-thousand-metre peaks, on your trip from Zermatt to the Gornergrat, you’ll be fascinated by the constant view of the Matterhorn.
Every month, from April to October, the most beautiful souvenir photo will be rewarded with a prize. There are two Zermatt-Gornergrat return tickets to be won. Then it’ll be time to pack your backpack, grab your friends and get going!
