Even though the Matterhorn is not the highest mountain it is the king of the mountains – the mountain of the mountains.The Matterhorn is just magical and it’s probably the most photographed mountain in the world. There are lots of myths and stories about the Matterhorn and this mountain was long considered too difficult to climb. 1865 the top was reached by Swiss and British Mountaineers. Since no one can escape it’s fascination I want to you to show one of the best spots to „meet the Matterhorn“ without actually climbing it – The Gornergrat.
Gornergrat – Experience The Matterhorn
The Gornergrat is a rocky ridge, 20 minutes away from the Zermatt Valley Station, located between the Findelgletscher and the Gornergletscher. It not only offers an incredible view of the Matterhorn, but also of more than twenty 4000 metre peaks of Switzerland and Italy.
Up there you’ll not only find a beautiful little chapel and a restaurant, but there is also the hotel 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat where you could spend a romantic night, drinking a glass of wine, while admiring the stars around the Matterhorn
