A Hotel like a research station: The Kulmhotel Gornergrat is in the middle of a high mountain range. At 3,100 metres above sea level, life is different to life down in the valley. Outside you are surrounded by the four-thousanders. Inside, checking in is easy and convenient.

The location is exceptional and we were lucky with a clear winter night. Rooms very good and staff friendly. highly recommended but beware of the altitude its not for everyone. The rooms are modern and well fitted. Novel naming and numbering by the peak names and altitudes that

This was a must have experience. As mentioned in many reviews, the hotel is located high on the mountain at the end of a 37 minute train ride and 47 minute return. The hotel was quaint and clean. The food, which was included was delicious and they were pretty flexible on

Brilliant staff, great facilities; an unforgettable way to ski. We arrived New Years eve around 6pm to the team setting up a mountain top party which was very cool. The whole stay was perfect, clean, tidy, delicious food, friendly staff. A surreal experience, highly recommend.

Yes they are operational and I think open once a month on a Thursday evening (run by a university??). I know they are working because when we stayed at the hotel we were given the offer of joining in but declined as there was poor visibility that evening and also the lecture was spoken mainly in German. Hope this helps. The Gornergrat Hotel is an amazing experience in itself as is the train journey there.

Xmas in Zermatt means snow and temperature around -5 to +5 Celsius. Visit Gornergrat for lunch only, unless you are a skier.

Is it worth staying at this hotel for 2 nights?
Definitely stay 2 nights. That always increases your chances of getting spectacular sunrises/sunsets in the mountains. We found we had one overcast day/evening with poor views and one astounding day/evening worth taking hundreds (!) of pictures. Walking around the area before the first train/after the last train is amazing (and there are steinbock who come very close when there are few people around).

How far is the train stop to the actual hotel? Is it easy to carry your suitcase there?
It is quite a short walk and there is a lift to the ground floor of the hotel. Another lift will take you to the reception if you go via the inside doors. If you veer to the right, you can enter through the outdoor area.

It's about 150m from the train station to the hotel (ascending). If you tell the hotel reception about your arrival time, we are sure somebody from the hotel staff will pick you up at the station. So you have no problems with the luggage.
