We loved the train ride up to the Gornergrat station at the top. We were only disappointed that it was too cloudy and foggy to actually see the Matterhorn. We picked the wrong date to visit the mountain. We just loved the Zermatt village with all its fun shops, restaurants, and hotels. Zermatt was definitely a highlight of our trip to Switzerland.
We were very happy to be able to use the fast entrance, otherwise we would not have made the 10:00 train to Gornergrat. There were so many tourists there who all still wanted to take the 10:00 train. It was a great experience to go to the Gornergrat and be so close to the Matterhorn. I will never forget the beautiful view. Many photos will remind us of the great trip.
