Going back down
There are three options for you to get back down to Zermatt;
- Get the train all the way back down
- Use your ticket to stop at the platforms along the way
- Get walking!
The great thing about buying a ticket on the Gornergrat Bahn is that you can stop off at all stations along the way. So if you just wanted to stop off and get a different view of the mountains, thats okay. Also, you could just walk a little of the way or between stations – so it’s completely flexible.
One of the highlights of walking is you get to see their amazing lakes which should, on a clear, sunny and completely non-windy day give you a clear reflection of the peak of the Matterhorn. But, as I said earlier, the clouds come in quickly! Despite this, the walk down is stunning and there are some cute cafes, bars and hotels to visit on your way down.
