Hotels and restaurants along the route provide for gastronomic delights, sun terraces are naturally included. On the subject of the sun: travelling towards the sunrise with the Gorner– grat Bahn – nothing could be more romantic. And purchasing a beautiful souvenir for one‘s loved ones on the summit whilst shopping. Moments of genuine happiness.Whether summer or winter – the Gornergrat offers something for everyone: be it walking, hiking or mountain biking, be it snow-shoe trekking, tobogganing or skiing. But there‘s one thing it offers above all to everyone: enjoyment.
