The Gornergrat is in the heart of Zermatt’s skiing area. When you take the Gornergrat railway you get directly from Zermatt railway station to the skiing area. The Gornergrat railway is only 50 metres away from the main station and is your shuttle to skiing fun.
Are your kids learning to do their first snow-ploughs?
The Gornergrat is the ideal place to ski with youngsters. From Gornergrat to Riffelberg are lovely blue and red pistes and against the unique backdrop it’s a great area to introduce your kids to the fun of skiing. Are your children feeling cold? We suggest you take a Gornergrat train instead of a chairlift to get back to the top again. The children will warm up and be ready to try their next descent. The sports trains run every 10 minutes between Riffelberg and Gornergrat.
Meeting point for skiers and walkers
Perhaps not everyone in your group is a skier, if so, the Gornergrat with its various sunny terraces is a wonderful meeting point for winter hikers, walkers or skiers. Whether you have a coffee just off the slopes, lunch with a panoramic view or start your après ski, the following places are easily accessible for both skiers and walkers:
We have plenty of winter activities for walkers:
