In Zermatt? Go Gornergrat!

Zermatt, VS, Switzerland

On a recent trip to France, we drove to Zermatt and stayed one night. We essentially had one afternoon in Zermatt and chose to go up to the Gornergrat.

At 10,000 or more feet up you are face to face with the most unbelievable mountain scenery. At the station you'll find food, souvenir shop, toilets, and places to sit and enjoy your lunch or a snack. The people-watching is pretty terrific, too. While we were there we saw mountain bikers come UP to the Gornergrat -- riding their bikes! I was impressed...

If you have time and some energy, take the hike from Gornergrat down to the Riffelberg. The trail is relatively easy (we saw lots of seniors on the trail), and the scenery of the mountains and into the valleys is unforgettable. Allow two hours for a leisurely and non-strenuous hike.
