The Gornergrat is the perfect hiking mountain for your day trip or holiday-stay in Zermatt. The Gornergrat Railway trains take you up to the top but you can also be flexible and leave or board a train at any of the four in-between stops along the way.
Hiking from 1,600 m to 3,100 meters above sea level
The Gornergrat itself stands at 3,100 m above sea level. The hiking area lies between the summit station and the valley station in Zermatt at 1,600 m. As you walk you cover distinct vegetational zones: you can choose between the rocky landscape at the top, alpine meadows, mountain lakes and the gnarled Arven pines in the forest of the same name.
