Favorite thing: Gornergrat is further up the mountain quite some way from Zermatt, and is the last stopping point for the train. There's just one more stop before you are at the very top of the Matterhorn, but that has to be taken by cablecar, and being afraid of heights, I was more than happy to linger at Gornergrat a while and enjoy walking around on the snow (only my 3rd ever time in the snow, and the other twice in Australia weren't huge falls or huge mountains)

Fondest memory: One of my fondest Swiss memories - playing in the snow up at Gornergrat, and wearing short sleeved t-shirts! I had never imagined how this could be possible and the snow not melt until this point.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
