The Gornergrat train will take you from the town of Zermatt to view the Swiss mountains. There is an observatory on top and it is well worth the train ride. You can hike down trails from the top of the Gornergrat or sledge down if you like. Sledging is like tobogganing and there is a track to follow the 4km to the bottom. Along the way you can check out the Igloo Village in the winter time. Igloo village is a bar and accommodations made in the ice. Many people like to stay over or stop for some hot wine. Spending a day on the mountain has never been more perfect with views of the Matterhorn, hot wine and good company!
Gondola to Glacier Paradise
I also took the gondola to Glacier Paradise to see a magnificent view of the Matterhorn. The best thing about Switzerland is the beauty and all the hiking trails.
