A different way to discover the popular panoramic viewpoint! On the Gornergrat round trip you will discover the many sides of the Zermatt resort area. Watch the panorama unfold as you take the gondola lift from Zermatt to Riffelberg via the idyllic hamlet of Furi and on the way back enjoy the ride on a section of the impressive rack-and-pinion railway back to Zermatt. If you like, you can take the Riffelberg Express for both sections of the trip (to the mountain and the valley), which cuts 15 minutes off the journey time each way.
If you decide to change the selected route on your way, a fee of CHF 10.00 (full fare) or CHF 5.00 (half-fare) will be charged on the spot for the change of route.
