Embark on an unforgettable journey to the Gornergrat, surrounded by the nostalgic charm of a 1961 carriage. Revel in the cozy interior and exclusive ambiance, all while enjoying guaranteed window seats for breathtaking views from Zermatt at 1604 meters above sea level to Gornergrat at 3089 meters above sea level.

The winter season of the NostalChic Class is over. We look forward to welcoming you again in the summer or next winter.

It's a culinary adventure amid the stunning mountain panorama of Gornergrat.

As the train slowly made its way up the mountain, I felt like I was in a nostalgic film. In the exclusive NostalChic Class, I was pampered by every trick in the book.
