My girlfriend and I will be in Switzerland the beginning of November 2018 – we are taking the train from Venice-Milan – Zermatt on the13th. We are wanting to do an excursion to Gornergrat. Will MT gornergrat be accessible at that time and what time would we need to start the excursion if it is open at that time of year? How long would the excursion take and are there set times to get there? Thanks so much Peter John
Gornergrat is always available to new and old mountaineers… year-round. There are trains running regularly from Zermatt (across the street from the main station). You can check the schedule on the timetable here: https://www.gozermatt.com (Zermatt to Gornergrat).
It is very much low season in Switzerland and Zermatt in early October – hiking season is over and ski season hasn’t started yet so be prepared for a quiet town, but the DuPont’s always open! Best fondue in town!.
