    Amazing ride up to the alps - you go at your own pace and there are many activities to do at the top with nice trails - then on the way down - get off at the next stop from the top Riffelberg and you can have a nice outdoor self serve lunch overlooking the matterhorn - afterward - hike down to Riffelalp - you will pass amazing glacier lakes and views - everyone was doing it and its easy downhill walk - then get back on the train and either go all the way down or get off at findelbach and hike the rest of the way down - the train is a great experience to do even if you dont do the hiking

    Absolutely worth seeing !!! The price has it all - first the multi-storey car park, then the train to Zermatt - the first euros are already gone. Unfortunately there is no other way to get to Zermatt. We waited until the last moment whether we could afford the adventure with the Gornergradbahn - since that is also very expensive. In hindsight it was the best decision - breathtaking views of the Matterhorn and the glaciers make up for all the effort. We would do it again at any time - but next time we would arrive earlier so that we have a lot more time up there

    A great experience. The journey is quite short, but grandiose. And then when you get to the top it's the apotheosis, a 360 degree view of the mountains. And of course the Matterhorn. Very expensive but no regrets... mountain lovers, this is the activity to do with family, couple or friends. Possibility of doing many hikes, or not. I recommend and I will return! Be careful to plan to park at Tasch station and take the train to Zermatt because Zermatt city without a car and no indication before arriving there, so turn around to Tasch. Plan the train to Tasch of 15 euros per person return.
