What makes the Gornergrat so unique?

The Gourmet Ticket combines everything and is definitely an indispensable part of the Gornergrat experience.

The Gourmet Ticket

Create a day for pure enjoyment on the Gornergrat.

  • Start the day at the mountain-top Gornergrat station in the 3100 Kulmhotel with a special aperitif, an ‘apéro riche’ (at the latest at 11.00 a.m.)

  • Enjoy the Hotel Riffelhaus on the Riffelberg with a 3-course gourmet menu (at latest at 2.00 p.m.)

  • The final jewel in the crown is a dessert with coffee at the Restaurant Alphitta on the Riffelalp (at latest at 4.00 p.m.)

What do you get?

Included in your ticket is the trip with the Gornergrat Railway to the appropriate stations as well as access to the sled run from Rotenboden to Riffelberg with as many train trips as you like from Riffelberg back to Rotenboden for those who aren’t satisfied with just one run. Furthermore, sled and snowshoe hire is also included.

Flexible - to suit everyone

To make the day as flexible as possible you create your own tailor-made programme; it’s neither a guided tour nor a pre-planned excursion. You, our guest, can decide exactly when you start your trip up to the Gornergrat and whether you go with the train, on foot or take part in a winter sports activity of your choice to move from one ‘gourmet station’ to the next.

Due to capacity limits in the restaurants the number of daily tickets is restricted. We advise you to book your Gourmet Ticket online in advance.
