The views are truly heavenly: Matterhorn, Breithorn, Klein Matterhorn, Weisshorn... A scene that seems to belong in a dream.
“Something for everyone” could be the motto of this trail. Mountain lovers are enchanted by the views of 29 mountains above 4,000 metres rising into the vast blue sky. Admirers of flowers find gentians, alpine anemones and other beautiful plants blossoming along the trail. Railway enthusiasts, meanwhile, enjoy glorious views of the Gornergrat Bahn cog railway and the chance to photograph trains from many different angles.
With a bit of luck, you can see an ibex, and sometimes you can also meet them at the salt posts especially set up on Gornergrat.
Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).
Caution! In spring the path may not be passable because of snow.
