“ Must See Excursion - Zermatt ”

If you want to discover the dazzling beauty of the Alps, you’ll soon realise that the trip to Gornergrat is a “must- see” excursion. 

Its sunny viewing platform, accessible all year, makes the Gornergrat ridge a top destination, and not just because of its altitude. Surrounded by 29 peaks rising to above 4000 m and by Switzerland’s greatest mountain and second longest glacier in the Alps, it offers a spectacular mountain panorama second to none. And the «Matterhorn Railway» renders it so close you can almost touch it.

Departing from Zermatt, Europe‘s highest open-air cog railway has travelled up onto the Gornergrat, at 3089 metres a.s.l., since 1898. Each of the 9339 metres travelled is an experience in itself, every second of the 33 minutes of travel time an unforgettable pleasure. 29 four-thousand metre peaks – from the Matterhorn through to the Monte Rosa – form a guard of honour. What‘s more, the magnificent vistas from the viewing platform, which remains accessible throughout the year, are all included in the ticket price.


Raily Center with opening hours:

Monday – Friday 
from 7:00 to 19:00 

Saturday – Sunday 
from 8:00 to 14:00

Totally, we took about over 3 hours here, still having time to go shopping in Zermatt town. I stayed 2 nights in Zermatt and was going to get to Montreux tomorrow.

Bye Bye Matterhorn on Gornergrat with this shot.
Comparing to Jungfrau, Gornergrat is much better in terms of price, view, time of travelling and safe from pickpockets.

In summer, tourists may chose to trek from Gornergrat to Riffelberg, about 25-30 mins. While I was here in April, it's not a good time to do so. You may take a map from Tourist Center in Zermatt, in the case.

The ancestors of the St. Bernard share a history with the Sennenhunds, also called Swiss Mountain Dogs or Swiss Cattle Dogs, the large farm dogs of the farmers and dairymen of the livestock guardians, herding dogs, and draft dogs as well as hunting dogs, search and rescue dogs, and watchdogs. These dogs are thought to be descendants of molosser type dogs brought into the Alps by the ancient Romans, and the St. Bernard is recognized internationally today as one of the Molossoid breeds.

The earliest written records of the St. Bernard breed are from monks at the hospice at the Great St Bernard Pass in 1707, with paintings and drawings of the dog dating even earlier.

The most famous St. Bernard to save people at the pass was Barry (sometimes spelled Berry), who reportedly saved somewhere between 40 and 100 lives. There is a monument to Barry in the Cimetière des Chiens, and his body was preserved in the Natural History Museum in Berne.

The classic St. Bernard looked very different from the St. Bernard of today because of cross-breeding. Severe winters from 1816 to 1818 led to increased numbers of avalanches, killing many of the dogs used for breeding while they were performing rescues. In an attempt to preserve the breed, the remaining St. Bernards were crossed with Newfoundlands brought from the Colony of Newfoundland in the 1850s, and so lost much of their use as rescue dogs in the snowy climate of the alps because the long fur they inherited would freeze and weigh them down.

The Swiss St. Bernard Club was founded in Basel on March 15, 1884. The St. Bernard was the very first breed entered into the Swiss Stud Book in 1884, and the breed standard was finally approved in 1888. Since then, the breed has been a Swiss national dog.

Start at Gonergrat Bahn opposite to Zermatt main station
if you arrive here before 14:00, you still have a plenty of time to get to Gornergrat Station.
It takes about 3-4 hours for a round trip including fun time on the view point.
